Award Description

The Professor BP Hughes Bursary was established by Professor Barry Peter Hughes, who devoted most of his working life to Civil Engineering at the University of Birmingham. The Professor BP Hughes Bursary will support Engineering students who require financial assistance in meeting one-off costs.

Whilst the bursary cannot cover general living costs, this bursary aims to provide comfort, security and peace of mind for cohorts of Engineering students who cannot meet specific costs due to financial reasons.

Value of Award

Bursaries of up to £5,000 will be available towards one-off costs, such as study costs or costs for attending and travelling to conferences.

Awards will be determined by a selection panel in the School of Engineering subject to available funds and quality of applications. It is anticipated that 3-5 full bursaries will be awarded each year.

Eligibility Criteria

The Professor BP Hughes Bursary is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students in the School of Engineering who are experiencing financial difficulties and are needing to meet one-off costs.

How to Apply

Students apply via an online form available on the BP Hughes canvas page. Please visit the canvas page for examples of costs the bursary can cover and for further details about the application process.

There is no deadline for applying as the bursary is awarded throughout the year.
