Strapped for Cash?
The Hardship Fund is made available to the University to provide discretionary financial help to support students facing unexpected financial crisis or who require extra financial help to meet particular costs which are not already being met from statutory sources of funding.
The final Allocation Group meeting for the Hardship Fund before Christmas will be held on Thursday, 11th December 2014.
Any student wishing to apply must complete and submit an application with all the relevant documentation to the Money Support Unit, Student Support Services, First Floor, Neuadd Rathbone, no later than Friday 5th December 2014.
Because of the limited nature of the funds, the following students are given priority:
- Disabled students, in particular those where the DSA is unable to meet particular costs and the institution has no legal responsibility to do so.
- Students with children.
- Students with existing essential financial commitments, including priority debts (Bank overdraft and credit cards would not normally be considered as a priority debt).
- Final year students who are in financial difficulty (including those unable to work due to academic pressures).
- Care Leavers.
- Foyer residents and other homeless students.
Students who have not taken out the maximum student loan entitlement will not be considered for assistance from the Hardship fund. If this applies to you, please contact the Money Support Unit for advice and information.
