Gareth Pierce Bursary Scheme

In honour of our former Chief Executive, we launched the Gareth Pierce Bursary in 2022 to support undergraduate students studying Mathematics through the medium of Welsh. 


The bursary scheme supports 3 students annually and is administered through the kind support of Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol.

Honouring Gareth Pierce’s legacy


Gareth worked tirelessly to support learners from across Wales throughout his career, including during his time at both WJEC and Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol. Gareth sadly passed away in 2021, and this bursary has been established as a small testament to his legacy. 



Under the scheme, 3 bursaries of £3,000 per year are given to each student who is studying Mathematics through the medium of Welsh and are also eligible for a means tested student loan. As the funds they receive are a grant, this is non-repayable, reducing the financial burden on students. The scheme opened for students who commenced their studies from September 2022 and applications run annually.
