Toptask invests a percentage of its proceeds into a scholarship programme that gives young people from all backgrounds the chance to attend university.
About the Scholarship
Students awarded a Toptasker Scholarship will receive:
Toptasker ambassador role
Toptasker Scholars are expected to become Ambassadors of the brand. This includes becoming a member of Toptask, representing Toptask at external events, providing stories & feedback of their personal Toptask experiences.
People born into low-income families, regardless of their talent, or their hard work, do not have the same access to opportunities as those born into more privileged circumstances.
Where you're from should not determine where you're going. However, in the UK today the data tells a different story:
The Toptasker Scholarship will initially support two students who will begin their first year of studies at a London university in September/October 2017. The programme is specifically aimed at motivating students from less privileged backgrounds. Toptask Scholars will receive £1,000 a year during their undergraduate degree course. In return Scholars will become Toptask Ambassadors, supporting Toptask at events and by providing blogs and sharing their experience online.
To be eligible for a Toptasker Scholarship students must meet the following academic and background criteria:
(A complete list of Schools with 30% or more FSM is available on the Social Mobility Foundation website).
Children in care will automatically meet our socio-economic criteria.
Eligible students should complete an online application form. This will include details of which school they attended and which university they are about to attend. As part of the application, we will require the student to answer questions about extra-curricular activities, work experience etc. There will be no right or wrong answers, but it will allow us to form a picture of how they spend their time outside of school and their interest in their chosen subject.
We will also require the student to supply the name and contact details for a teacher who we can approach for confirmation of eligibility and a reference/recommendation.
Depending on the number and quality of applications received, Toptask reserves the right to shortlist the most suitable applicants and invite them for a personal interview, from which the two scholars with then be selected.
