A Background

UCL, known as University College London, has been around since 1826. It was the first university in London to open up education to students of any religion, which was a big change back then1. The IMPACT Scholarship is part of this history because it’s about giving chances to students who might not have them otherwise. It offers up to £19,300 for students who want to study public health and can show they’ve faced challenges because of their background.

This scholarship is UCL’s way of keeping up with its history of making education fairer. It’s for students who are going to use what they learn to help make health better for all kinds of people.
