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. 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.

What makes the Scholars programme so unique is the sense of community with other Scholars, forming lasting relationships and being able to share experiences from completing university and internships in the bank together.
