The ICAEW Foundation provides bursaries through UK universities for talented students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds wishing to study for an accountancy or finance related degree at university.

The ICAEW Foundation has announced its 2020 programme offering a bursary of £12,000, payable in equal instalments over each year of study, towards relevant degrees in accountancy and finance, and has partnered with the School of Management at Swansea University to offer one bursary for a student starting an accountancy or finance related programme in 2020.

The ICAEW Foundation bursary is specifically for talented but financially disadvantaged (a family income of circa £25,000 pa) school leavers who would like to study for an accountancy or finance related degree at university.
