KMMS Scholarships

Applicants 2022

Applications are open to all offer holders who have firmly accepted unconditional or conditional offers from KMMS.  Please note all these scholarships are for Kent and Medway Medical School applicants only.

All external awards for fees and maintenance are called scholarships. We do not recognize a difference between academic-based scholarships and needs-based bursaries.

To note: Medical students will not be eligible for a payment in years that they are repeating, resitting, interrupting or intercalating.  If a student transfers to another course or withdraws, they will cease to be eligible for any outstanding payments.

The deadline for applications for all 2022 scholarships is 19th June 2022, 23:59 (BST).

We are now fundraising for scholarships for our 2023 entrants and details will be published here early in 2023.
