Graduate Entrepreneur Bursaries

Start-up business bursaries for final year students at the University of Plymouth

Formation Zone have teamed up with Santander Universities to offer bursaries to final-year students looking to start their own business after graduation, whose financial circumstances might make this seem unachievable.

You may be eligible for a £2,000 Graduate Entrepreneur Bursary to start your business in Formation Zone – to cover business start-up and living costs and a 3 month Formation Zone package, including use of a dedicated workstation and practical, flexible business support and training.

The bursaries are designed to help students who are ready to start their business after finishing their studies, but need a cash boost to help them on their way, and are an extension of the partnership between Formation Zone, the University of Plymouth, and Santander Universities.

How to apply

To be eligible for the bursary, you must be a final year student of the University of Plymouth, graduating in 2019 and be starting a business in one of the following sectors: creative industries, hi-tech, marine, environmental, advanced engineering, or health and wellbeing. You must also meet the eligibility criteria for the incubator and the bursary.
