Open Futures Scholarship for Black Students 2024/2025

The Open Futures Scholarship for Black Students provides an opportunity for new, UK-resident students who identify as Black to study for free.

The Open University is committed to driving change and ensuring that academic institutions remain inclusive and accessible for all members of society. They launched the Black Students’ Support Fund as their data showed that the number of new Black undergraduate students had significantly declined at The Open University.


  • Ten scholarships will be available in 2024/25. A scholarship covers OU undergraduate credit-bearing modules and qualifications, paying for the full tuition cost of your qualification, up to 120 credits each seasonal academic year and 360 credits in total.
  • Successful scholarship recipients will also receive a one-off £500 study costs grant to support with the costs of preparing for study with the OU, such as buying a laptop, study materials or arranging internet access.
