Award Description

The Leathersellers' Company made its first educational awards in the early 17th century. The Leathersellers’ Student Grants Scheme aims to support students, from any part of the UK, in real financial need and whose circumstances may be preventing their excellence and talent from shining through.

Value of Award

The Leathersellers' Company awards University Grants (Exhibitions) of up to £5,000 a year for a maximum of 4 years, to study for a full-time degree at any UK University.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible to apply for a Student Grant you must be a student already enrolled on a full-time degree course at a UK University, or with an offer to do so later this year.  Exceptional students from the Greater London area may be prioritised, but applications from any area of the UK are accepted.

If you are a non–UK citizen you may be eligible if you are currently living in the UK and

  • have a minimum of 5 years leave or right to remain; or
  • have studied in the UK at secondary educational level; or
  • have UK family ties

And are able to prove your commitment to the United Kingdom upon completion of your studies.

Students from Leathersellers Federation of Schools or Colfe’s School are encouraged to apply, as are those connected with the Leather Trade, including those students working with Leather within the world of fashion, product design and engineering.

Graduates and Undergraduates who express an intention to take Holy Orders are also encouraged to apply.
