Inspiring the next generation through education.

Undergraduate bursary offered by PPMA BEST.

Our PPMA BEST Undergraduate Bursary has been designed to support degree-level students through part- or full-time holiday (non-study term) placements with a non-levy paying company (sponsor).

The applicant must be paid at least the national minimum wage by their employer in order to qualify. The employer will also be expected to provide a £1,000 grant for each year (up to a maximum of three years) that the applicant is studying for a Level 6 qualification in England and Wales or SCQF Level 9 in Scotland through a recognised higher education provider.

What’s more, a match-funded bursary of £1,000 per year (up to a maximum of three years) will be awarded by PPMA BEST to help each student through their course.


If you’d like to apply then please download a copy of the Undergraduate Bursary Application and submit your completed form to PPMA BEST Education Grants, PPMA BEST, New Progress House, 34 Stafford Road, Wallington, Surrey, SM6 9AA.

There is also the option of scanning and sending a copy of your completed form to ppmabest@automate-uk.com.
