Graduate Entrepreneur Bursaries

Formation Zone have teamed up with Santander Universities to offer £2,000 bursaries to final-year students looking to start their own business after graduation, whose financial circumstances might make this seem unachievable.

The bursaries are designed to help students who are ready to start their business after finishing their studies, but need a cash boost to help them on their way, and are an extension of the partnership between Formation Zone, the University of Plymouth, and Santander Universities.

Recipients of the bursary will join us in our award-winning business incubator, where they will also receive mentoring and start-up support to boost their chances of success.

To be eligible for the bursary, you must be a student of the University of Plymouth and be starting a business in one of the following sectors: creative industries, hi-tech, marine, environmental, advanced engineering, or health and wellbeing. You must also meet the eligibility criteria for the incubator and the bursary.

If you would like to apply for one of the six available bursaries, you can check your eligibility and download the application form below. If you would like more information before applying, please get in touch with the Formation Zone team using the contact form.
