The School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences offer scholarships for outstanding achievement.
As part of our Potential High Achievers Scheme, we want to encourage you to continue to work hard for your exams, which are so important for your future career.
We will reward those applicants who achieve the highest grades in their exams and demonstrate a commitment to the University of Plymouth by awarding them £1,000 when they enrol.
We would encourage this scholarship to be spent on the final year optional field trip or towards study costs.

Girls into geoscience
This exciting one day workshop, with additional optional field trip to Dartmoor, will introduce female A level students to the Earth sciences and demonstrate the world of careers open to Earth science graduates today.
With seminars from women working in geology, and hands on workshops looking at GIS, microfossils and planetary geology, this year’s girls into geoscience event isn’t one to miss.
