ICAS Foundation - Accountancy & Financial Services Bursaries

The ICAS Foundation awards bursaries of up to £2,500 per year a total of £10,000 for a 4-year undergraduate degree.

The ICAS Foundation awards bursaries of up to £2,500 per year a total of £10,000 for a 4-year undergraduate degree, to individuals whose parents or guardians earn under a certain threshold per annum. The bursaries aim to help alleviate the costs of studying and, for example, day-to-day living costs. 

Bursaries are available to Edinburgh Napier University students who have an unconditional or conditional offer. If you are already studying accountancy or a finance degree at Edinburgh Napier University, you may be eligible to apply if you can demonstrate that your circumstances have changed significantly.

Individuals receiving an ICAS Foundation bursary are automatically enrolled in the ICAS Foundation mentoring scheme which aims to help young people to reach their full potential with the help and support of an experienced Chartered Accountant (CA).

Are you eligible?

If you are a recipient (or will receive) a Scottish Government Young Students Bursary, you may be eligible for a bursary from the ICAS Foundation, provided you intend to study an accountancy or finance course at university.

• Have you applied, intend to apply or are currently studying an undergraduate course in accountancy or finance course at university?
