The Access Foundation approved a grant to fund an annual intake of Scholarship students, for the next three years. These scholarships will be for students who wish to study courses in Computer Science and IT Management for Business.
Disadvantaged young people struggle to progress to university, even when they have the academic ability to do so. Education is a route out of poverty and a key driver of social mobility, but access to education is not equal.
Despite 20% of children in the UK coming from low-income backgrounds, only 3% go on to attend the selective, top tier universities like Loughborough.
By supporting this project at Loughborough University, we are contributing to levelling the playing field for young people to change the rest of their lives.
