Applying for an ICAEW Foundation Changing Futures Bursary

We offer a very limited number of bursaries and the awarding criteria is strictly applied. Our bursaries are specifically for talented but financially disadvantaged (a family income of circa £25,000 pa) school leavers who would like to study for an accountancy or finance related degree at university. We would like to assist students who do not receive any other form of financial assistance or funding.

ICAEW Foundation is particularly grateful to the family of the late Geoffrey Beckingham FCA who generously sponsor a long running bursary programme, through ICAEW Foundation, in Manchester Business School as a thoughtful bequeath in memory of their father.

The Foundation has announced its 2019 programme:

  • Liverpool University – a £12k bursary for a first year student of the BA Accounting and Finance degree
  • Aston – a £12k bursary for a first year student in the Accounting for Management degree

Details of how to apply will be available on the university websites.
