University bursary for successful Teach First applicants
The University of York will commit to pay students from the University (who have an offer from Teach First and who start the Summer Institute in the year they graduate), a bursary of £1000.
Successful applicants to the Teach First Leadership Development Programme will receive the bursary award to assist with potential relocation costs, travel costs and living costs during the Summer Institute and the first month of the Programme.
Conditions of the bursary
As part of the University’s commitment to widening participation, students awarded the bursary are asked to support the institution and Teach First in inspiring future pupils to enter higher education.
To fulfil this condition you are asked to:
