Hiya Hoppy welcome mate & good luck in attaining a scholarship.

I've a feeling the original thread regarding scholarships & bursaries has been lost in the void of our server problems a little while back.

Whilst not trying to be negative, you need to be aware from the whole of UK there was only one RM scholarship & 4 RM bursaries awarded in 2006 (the last year I have figures for).
You really do need to be top of the crop, which I hope you are.

Again, the very best of luck to you.

The scholarship is for those studying A Levels- it's £1050 per year.

There's been 3 awarded in the past two years, so we're talking tip-top academic achievers who pass POC & AIB at 16 or 17 years of age.
