The Snowdon Master’s Scholarship has been designed to accelerate the most exceptional disabled students through master’s studies and into leadership in all its forms, to be visible role models and drive disability inclusion. The influencers of the future.

We are searching for individuals who choose to use their lived experience of disabling barriers to make a difference. To create change.

You might have ambition to be a thought or a subject leader. To become prominent in your field or in your community. To participate in public life or in any activity where representation of disabled persons is disproportionately low. Whatever your specific plans, it’s likely that you, or others around you, see your current or future self as a role model, pioneer or leader. And that your future plans will help drive societal change and inclusion for all.

If you feel like that describes you and your plans, we are excited to meet you.


The Snowdon Master’s Scholarship is worth up to £30,000 payable as contribution of up to £15,000 towards fees paid directly to your university, and a further £15,000 paid to you in termly instalments to cover living expenses over the duration of your Master’s study.

Scholarship holders are invited to join 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.
