Edge Hill University offers a range of scholarships to celebrate determination, commitment and achievement in a variety of areas, as well as rewarding academic excellence.

Each year, the University gives out thousands of pounds to those students who have made valuable contributions to University life, either by excelling academically, raising the profile of Edge Hill in a positive way, promoting equality, motivating others, or by overcoming personal circumstances in order to achieve.

The winners are recognised for their achievements at a special awards ceremony.
