When to apply

You will be able to apply from January 2024 if you are looking to begin a Master's for the 2024/25 academic year.

We'll be posting more information and details about applying towards the end of 2023. You can also follow us on social media for more updates.

The Snowdon Trust Master’s Scholarship has been designed to identify and accelerate exceptional Disabled Students through higher education, creating the influencers of the future.

Each candidate will bring something different to the programme. Successful candidates will demonstrate that they have some or all of the following attributes:

– Exceptional leaders, with the ability to create change within and beyond their academic field.

– Individuals that have shown excellence within their chosen subjects.

– Demonstrated leadership potential with a proven drive for success.

– Ability to create change and drive Disability issues.

– Proven achievements in academia, employment, or voluntary activities.

The Snowdon Trust are searching for applicants who can communicate their aspiration to become an exceptional leader, a role model, or a pioneer in their area of expertise. Ideal candidates will also demonstrate how the scholarship will create profound impact on their current circumstances, future influences, and opportunities. This includes how the Scholarship will support them as a Disabled Person to overcome barriers inflicted by society, including attitudinal, physical, social, emotional and many more.

Current and past Snowdon Scholars are invited to become members of the Disabled Leaders Network.

There is no doubt growing up disabled has shaped my passions for the future. Seeing how hard people must fight for the support they deserve, and the injustices people face has made me a passionate advocate for disabled people's rights.
