Scholarships for Excellence

The Alton College Foundation will be offering a range of Scholarships for Excellence this academic year.  

Students are asked to apply in writing (letter or email) to the Foundation indicating the Scholarship for which they are applying. The application should include why they should be awarded a scholarship; which subjects they have enjoyed at school and any hobbies. Whilst students do not need to use an application form, if they prefer to do so, there is a new online application form available on the Alton College Foundation Website.  

The deadline for receipt of applications this year is Thursday 22 November.  

Interviews for the shortlisted candidates will be held over a two week period in January (14 – 25 January 2019).
