This fund was launched as an appropriate way of expressing the General Council's appreciation of His Royal Highness the Prince Philip's long and distinguished service as Chancellor of the University and provides bursaries and access scholarships for students who would otherwise be unable to afford to go to university.
The goal is to build an endowment substantial enough to support these scholarships in perpetuity. A typical bursary provides £1,000 of support each year for qualifying and deserving students. These new Bursaries are in addition to the existing Edinburgh Fund Access Bursaries, and it is hoped that together they will give hundreds of students the chance to take up their deserved places at the University.
