Accountancy Bursary Opportunity

Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland (ICAS)

Applications for 2018 ICAS Foundation Bursaries are now open until May18th for pupils applying to university for accountancy/finance degrees

The ICAS Foundation awards bursaries of up to £2,500 per year, to individuals whose parents or guardians earn under a certain threshold per annum. The bursaries aim to help alleviate the costs of studying and, for example, day-to-day living costs.

Bursaries are available to secondary school students, college students or students already at university who are applying to study on an approved course, for example an accountancy or finance degree.

Individuals receiving an ICAS Foundation bursary are automatically enrolled in the ICAS mentoring scheme that aims to help young people to reach their fullest potential with the help and support of an experienced Chartered Accountant (CA).


If you are a recipient (or will receive) a Scottish Government Young Students Bursary, you are eligible to apply for a bursary from the ICAS Foundation, provided you intend to study an accountancy or finance course at university.

If you can answer yes to these questions you are eligible to apply for an ICAS Foundation Bursary:

Have you applied, intend to apply or are currently studying an undergraduate course in accountancy or finance course at university?

Is your parental/guardian income under £34,000?

If the answer is yes to all of the above then you are eligible to apply for an ICAS Foundation Bursary.

Students in receipt of a scholarship from the university or a trust similar to the ICAS Foundation are not eligible to apply.

If any pupil would like to clarify their eligibility please e-mail
