The Gillian Stead Bursary is a cash award worth £2,100 available to UK/EU undergraduate students who enter the first year of a BSc or MMath degree in mathematics and who have obtained 128 UCAS Tariff points from three A-Levels (excluding General Studies) including an A in A level maths or equivalent*.

Further awards of £2,100 will be made to these students for each subsequent year of their undergraduate degree, subject to the achievement of an average mark of 65% at the end of the previous year of study.

After her studies here Gillian taught maths at A-level in many institutions and also with the Open University. Following her tragically early death this memorial bursary was generously set up in her name by her father, to support students of the subject she loved.

Applicants who achieve the set criteria do not need to apply for the bursary, they will be automatically considered. Students in receipt of the University of Hull Gillian Stead Bursary will not be eligible for the University of Hull Merit or Excellence Scholarships. The terms of the bursary are subject to review by the Department.
