The Postcode Lottery Green Challenge Scholarship is a competition for prospective and current students wishing to pursue a postgraduate degree with the view that it will help lead to the development of a ‘green themed’ commercial concept.
The competition rewards concepts and ideas that successfully combine sustainability, entrepreneurship and creativity. A judging panel will consider applications that could conceivably be brought to market and potentially make a contribution towards reducing carbon emissions.
The competition is a unique funding opportunity offering students the chance to win a scholarship of up to £20,000 to cover their postgraduate degree tuition fees for up to 3 years.
Application deadline: March 30th

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
