Lloyds Scholars, our social mobility programme aimed at UK students, was established in 2011. In partnership with eight leading universities across the UK, we offer students from lower income households a complete support package, helping them manage the financial strain of University whilst improving their employability.
The Scholars Programme
Lloyds Scholars receive a unique combination of financial support, a Lloyds Banking Group mentor, sessions to develop their skills and the opportunity to gain valuable work experience though paid internships.
In return we ask that they volunteer for local causes, enabling them to enhance their CV and give back to their local community. We accept students from nearly all disciplines and all have the opportunity, but not obligation, to join our Graduate Leadership programme after university.
Our Partner Universities
The programme continues to go from strength to strength, with the University of Bath and the University of Birmingham joining the programme in 2013 taking the number of our universities to eight.
