Two types of scholarship are available through the Santander Universities partnership:

International Postgraduate Scholarships to encourage travel overseas, particularly to Latin American countries.

Santander Universities support Northumbria students and graduate entrepreneurs as well as the small business community in the North East through a variety of competitions and awards, online resources and start up events. Last year Santander funded a Start-Up weekend in March, over 40 students attended the event across 3 days covering the lean start up methodology.
