Rod Coleman Scholarship

This scholarship is available to undergraduate students who meet certain criteria.

About the scholarship

Five scholarships are available to second year undergraduate students. These scholarships were established by the Wallscourt Foundation, in memory of Rod Coleman, who was Head of Widening Participation at UWE Bristol and who died in 2005. The Wallscourt Foundation is an independent charitable trust which supports education and learning at UWE Bristol.

To be eligible for this scholarship, you must meet the following criteria:

  • you must be in your second year of an undergraduate programme at UWE Bristol
  • you must have been recognised through the official Dean's List* at the end of your first year of study
  • you must be in receipt of a UWE Bristol bursary
  • you must be a mature student (aged 21 or over on entry to undergraduate study).

* The Dean’s List is a celebration of the students with outstanding performance. It is a list of students that achieve an average module score across an academic year of at least 70%. The award takes the ‘best’ 120 credits (full-time) or 60 credits (part-time), based on module marks, and creates a weighted average for that student (resits are taken into account).

Whilst we welcome applications from all eligible students, applications from the following under-represented groups will be prioritised:

  • disabled students
  • Black, Asian and minority ethnic students
  • care leavers, student carers and estranged students.

The Rod Coleman Scholarship offers £2,000 for the second year of study only.

Applications for 2023 are no longer open, but should re-open in January 2024. 

Eligible students will be emailed the application link. If you haven’t received an email and think you’re eligible, please email
