Fund your education with a career that makes a difference
Always taking the first step. Making the tough calls. Keeping heads up and hope strong. Being a leader isn’t always easy, but, at the British Army, it’s worth it. As an Army Officer, you’ll push yourself and your team further than you thought possible. At the centre of every unforgettable adventure, you’ll be there, building trust and inspiring achievement.
Supported to succeed
Our Army Officer Scholarship Scheme offers financial support to future leaders studying for A-Levels, Scottish Highers or equivalent qualifications. If you’re a high-quality student between 16-18 years of age and have your heart set on becoming an Officer, you could be eligible for financial support to help you through school and university.
If you have a strong academic record and leadership potential, you could receive up to £3,000 when you’re in Academic Year 13 (Sixth Form). You'll also be given a provisional award of a Standard Army Undergraduate Bursary, worth £6,000 for a three-year degree and have your place at Sandhurst secured for when you've finished your education.
What we are looking for
Anyone with a strong academic ability and leadership potential who is studying for A-Levels or equivalent at a school or college in the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, or at an Army secondary school overseas, can apply for a scholarship.
