Participation and Progression

The Keele Key Fund is keen to enhance the University experience of students and to support them when needed.


Bursaries and Scholarships

The Keele Key Fund has previously supported and enhanced the University’s offering of scholarship and bursaries offering through all academic disciplines.

We also have growing prize fund for students.  The prize funds are managed by the relevant School in conjunction with Campaigns and Development.

We also provide financial support to those students who are coming to Keele from a background in care without the benefit of any family support, financial and otherwise.

In addition, we have a number of students who, whilst they are studying at university, also have caring responsibilities for a family member – be it a mother or father or sibling.  These students often need a little extra support.

The care leavers and care givers fund are managed by Student Services in conjunction with Campaigns & Development.
