De Montfort University: Save our Scholarships

210 Signatures Goal: 250

In a time of difficult funding, it is clear that Universities must save expenditure in order to maintain quality education and an excellent student experience.

However, changing scholarship criteria half way through a students’ time at university is unacceptable.

By increasing the threshold to 65% in order to receive their scholarship, 1,600 students face uncertainty as to whether they will receive the funding they were promised. Many students applied to DMU on the basis that this funding would be available if they simply passed the year. Changing this so abruptly is unfair.

This petition calls for a lowering of the 65% threshold to 60%, a benchmark we feel is more achievable for students and continues to strive for academic excellence. This petition also calls for the 65% threshold to be phased in through the year groups.

To show your support to this campaign, simply sign the petition...
