IOP 2022 Scholarships Application Form



Are you eligible?

Before you can apply, you need to be eligible for an IOP Scholarship. If you are unsure of your eligibility, please refrain from submitting this form and contact us on 0207 470 4959 or

Are you an ‘eligible’ student for the provision of UK student support (to receive grants and loans towards tuition fees or living costs)?

If you are an overseas national from outside the EEA or Switzerland, you are unlikely to be eligible for home fee status or financial support under Student Finance England criteria. Non-UK trainees should read Train to teach in England: non-UK applicants. Please see the UKCISA website for additional guidance about 'home fee' status, or speak to your chosen Teacher Training provider.


Will you be training on an eligible University-led, SCITT or School-Direct (non-salaried) course?

You can only be awarded a scholarship if you train on a non-salaried course that leads to QTS. Please look at the eligibility section on our website for more information.



Will you be training in England?

The IOP Teacher Training Scholarships are run in partnership with the Department for Education and therefore not available to those training in institutions in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales. *
