The Bowman Scholarships are for students from forced migration backgrounds who are studying in the United Kingdom but do not have the qualifications to enter an undergraduate degree program or the financial resources to complete a foundation year. We are well aware that the experience of forced migration restricts students’ ability to pursue higher education opportunities. This is one of the reasons why we provide the Bowman Scholarship. Every year, we provide financial assistance to two students from forced migration backgrounds who are studying in the United Kingdom but do not have the qualifications to enroll in an undergraduate degree program or the financial means to pay their tuition costs.
