Scholarships Availability

It has long been the policy of Dover College to support local senior school pupils (year 7 and above) who have been unable to pay full fees. The Governors of the College are committed to broadening access by offering means-tested bursaries to beneficiaries who would otherwise not be able to attend the College.  Awards are protected from inflation by being expressed as a percentage of the annual fees. 

All bursary awards are subject to annual testing of parental means and may be varied as parental circumstances change.  Awards are assessed on the basis of a completed Confidential Statement of Financial Circumstances which is available from the Bursar.

Bursary funds are limited and priority will be given to those who have been awarded scholarships as they are those likely to gain most from attending the College.  The potential contribution of the candidate to the wider School community will also be taken into consideration as will the likely impact of the award on the candidate’s education opportunity. 

Applications are made directly to the Bursar whose decision is final.
