In 1991 a trust fund was endowed in the University of Liverpool for the provision of John Lennon Memorial Scholarships, in memory of John Lennon and recognising the interests in encouraging the higher education for well-qualified students who would not otherwise be able to either enter or to remain in the University and enhancing among other things awareness of global problems and environmental issues.
The John Lennon Memorial Scholarship is available to all prospective and current Home (UK) and EU students. Please note that international students and students from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine are not eligible for application to this scholarship. In accordance with the donor’s intentions, priority will be given to applicants whose permanent residence is in Merseyside. All prospective students must have accepted an offer to study at the University of Liverpool. Undergraduate applicants must have selected the University as their first choice. Awards will be made on the basis of financial need and academic merit, and applicants should demonstrate an active and interest in global, community and environmental issues.
