The scholarships, each worth £6,000, are paid in three instalments annually at the start of each university year and students are free to use the money as they wish.
All Kings academic students are eligible for these awards, which are given each year in memory or celebration of a different person or event.
Be your best
At Kings we reward excellence and commitment. We want our students to reach higher than other students. We want our students to be the best they can be. These scholarships are in recognition of student effort and achievement.
You don't have to do anything to enter for these; if you're taking an A-level or Advanced Level Foundation course at one of the Kings Colleges, you're automatically eligible for one of these awards.
How winners are chosen
The Kings Scholarships are awarded across three categories:
1. A-level student
Awarded to the student achieving the best overall result in the AS and A2 exams.
2. Foundation student
Awarded to student achieving the best overall foundation diploma result.
3. Most Improved Student
A discretionary award to the student deemed most improved during their academic year.
The scholarships are awarded by Kings Colleges and at the discretion of the Principal of each college on the recommendation of an independent Advisory Board for the Kings Scholarships.
Members of the Board are distinguished educators drawn from further and higher education and have no other connection with Kings.
Awards are given across all three colleges.
Pride in our winners
Being extremely proud of our Scholarship students, we invite winners to act as ambassadors for Kings. This interesting ongoing role may mean attending events with current students, appearing at overseas fairs in their own countries, writing blogs, being interviewed or appearing in Kings publicity materials.
