The ECA Undergraduate Bursary Fund has been created to help students and £1,000 will be awarded for the entirety of the recipient's study. This allows students to nurture their talent without fear of the unknown when they graduate.

These days’ students look at their education in terms of return on investment and potential graduating salary. In the age of tuition fees, growing debt expensive living costs, we do not want talented students being put off studying at ECA due to financial worries.
