Jamaica National Bank and Nottingham Trent University Scholarship
Thanks to the generosity of Jamaica National Bank, we are delighted to be able to offer the Jamaica National Bank and Nottingham Trent University Scholarship. These awards will be co-funded by Nottingham Trent University to support up to three talented students who have exceptional academic potential and need help with meeting the costs of studying at university.
These prestigious awards are open to applications from students starting a full-time undergraduate degree on one of the below courses, in September 2023.

Three successful recipients will be awarded £2,000 for each year of study (excluding any placement year). The total value of the award per academic year will consist of:
- £1,000 cash bursary provided by Jamaica National Bank, and
- £1,000 tuition fee waiver provided by NTU.
If you are awarded the scholarship your tuition fees will be adjusted by NTU before enrolment. Please note, you will not receive the award during your placement year if you choose to study a sandwich course.
This scholarship scheme is competitive, and we award scholarships to the applicants who most closely meet or exceed the criteria for the award. The scholarship decision is made by an awarding committee and all decisions of that awarding committee are final.
Please note that this is one of a number of awards offered by Nottingham Trent University and details of the range of available awards can be found on our bursaries and scholarships page. Prospective students can apply for more than one named scholarship/award/tuition fee reduction, however you will only be awarded a maximum of one in your first year of study (the highest value award that you are eligible for).
