In October 2018, Kick It Out and UCFB announced the recipients of 'The Next 25' Scholarship at special launch event in Manchester.

‘The Next 25' Scholarship Fund is funding university tuition – worth up to £54,000 – for 25 students on an undergraduate or postgraduate university degree at the UCFB Wembley Campus in London or the UCFB Etihad Campus in Manchester.

This incredible scholarship offers students a once in a lifetime opportunity to earn a world-class degree at UCFB - right next to either the iconic Wembley Stadium or Manchester City's Etihad Stadium - as well as act as an official ambassador for Kick It Out across UCFB and the wider football industry.

Each Kick It Out scholar is a peer educator on behalf of the organisation and students will also support Kick It Out’s educational work, leading on and delivering a research project in the area of diversity and inclusivity in football, with the assistance and guidance of Kick It Out and UCFB.
