As Journey to Success enters its 30th year, we are excited to announce that applications for our 2022 programme are now open!

The programme offers self-development opportunities and financial support (up to £4,000 per year) to 16 to 25-year-olds who face barriers to participation in higher education. If you’re interested in nominating a young person, please visit the Journey to Success page.

And please hurry! Applications are open until March 31st for nominations from Schools and Colleges, and until May 31st for nominations from University staff.

Young people joining the programme this year will be starting their journey with us at a pivotal moment. Since launching the programme in 1992, we have supported thousands of young people who are driven and passionate about self-development and collaboration.

As Journey to Success aims to develop an active network of peer support for Robertson Scholars, a commitment to participating in the opportunities available through the programme is key. To check the eligibility of your nomination, please read our criteria on the Journey to Success page.
