Gareth Pierce Bursary Scheme

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


The bursary scheme will support 3 students annually and will be 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 new scheme, 3 bursaries of £3,000 per year will be 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 will open for students who will commence their studies from September 2022 and applications will run annually.
