Lloyds Scholars is a programme for young people which supports their social mobility, throughout university and into employment. Partnering with eight leading universities across the UK, including UCL in London, Lloyds Scholars offers young people from lower-income households a combination of financial support, two 10-week paid internships, a dedicated mentor and the opportunity to develop their employability skills through workshops and seminars.
22 London students currently benefit across all partner universities and they are asked to volunteer 100 hours a year in the community to build skills and support local regeneration.
In 2012 100% of eligible Scholars were offered a place on Lloyds’ Graduate Programme.
