A Cisco scholarship provides the opportunity to connect with key stakeholders from Cisco and learn more about the business. There is also the opportunity to participate in an MSc project organised by Cisco or one of its partners.


Cisco Scholarships are worth £25,000. The value of the scholarship is applied against tuition fees, and the balance is then paid in three installments across the year to recipients. The scholarships are available for course offer holders who are from at least one of the following three under-represented groups within Computer Science:

1.   Women

2.   Students of an African or Caribbean heritage
