University of Kent BAME in Higher Education Ambition Scholarship for Graduates 2024

The University has developed a range of scholarships to support our final year undergraduate students choosing to progress to postgraduate study.

The BAME in Higher Education Scholarship is designed to support Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) students of our Kent Community.

These awards are part of Kent’s efforts to support your further advanced education and facilitate a better tomorrow. They are designed to help you achieve your career goals and ambitions.

This scholarship is available for current final year Kent undergraduate students only.

Aim and Benefits 

Scholarship value is £5,000 for UK students (£2,500 per year for part time students)


  • For current Kent Undergraduates with a 2.1 or first class degree continuing to Master’s study at any of Kent’s locations (UK Fee paying students)
  • For applicants who identify as Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME). Kent understands, at times, that ‘BAME’ does not fully reflect the complexity or nuances of diversity within the UK. Here, we use ‘BAME’ to highlight racial identities critically underrepresented within Higher Education—a focus this scholarship is intended to address.
  • Paid towards tuition fees. 
  • Postgraduate Taught programmes only.
  • Postgraduate Research Master’s students are not eligible as the fees are lower.
  • MArch students who are direct entrants from an UG degree are eligible.
  • Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma Students are not eligible. 
  • Students in receipt of this award are not permitted to also hold the Kent Graduate Ambition Scholarship or the Widening Participation Ambition Scholarship.
  • This award cannot be used in conjunction with any complete fee waiver. Successful applicants offered multiple awards must confirm which award they prefer to accept and any remaining scholarships will be made available to a reserve candidate.
  • Undergraduates applying to study at any of the following University of Kent campuses are eligible to apply:
    • Canterbury
    • Medway
    • Paris
