No words can describe how thankful I am for the life changing bursary I received. The generosity of Helen Kegie has changed my life in so many ways. I can make something of myself, achieve my dreams and not be held back because of my limited finances.


For both undergraduate and postgraduate students aiming to study within the subject areas of Social Work, Youth Work or Early Years, the Helen Kegie Bursary - named after the late Helen Kegie MBEis awarded to individuals who can demonstrate a strong knowledge of their subject area and a high degree of ability to reflect and link theory to practice. 


The Bursary has been granted for some while and continues to be granted annually. Subject to the number of applications received, recipients can receive up to £2,000 to help towards maintenance expenses as a result of being accepted on to their course. Open to those studying from a defined range of social science-related courses and who permanently reside in South Wales with a CF or NP postcode; the Helen Kegie Bursary remains true to the original objective of supporting those who may otherwise struggle financially.
