Multicultural Scholars' Programme

    The programme was initiated as a result of the generosity of two anonymous donors and is now supported by other individual donors, Warwick graduates and external organisations.

    The Multicultural Scholars’ Programme is a unique, and therefore highly competitive programme. Since its foundation in 2005, 47 scholars have graduated from the MSP and gone on to pursue successful careers. Our scholarships are funded by individuals, law firms and businesses who have high expectations of scholars and the University has a responsibility to recruit the most committed students to the programme.

    Our scholars receive financial, pastoral and careers support, as well as the opportunity to visit workplaces and take part in social and cultural events within a community of supportive and ambitious peers. It is the wish of the donors that the programme should prioritise help for students from poorly represented ethnic groups in UK Higher Education.
