Award Description

Theses awards are available to all students with disabilities regardless of programme, level or mode of study.

Candidates are selected by a panel consisting of the Chair of the Welfare Tutor’s Forum, the Head of Disability, the Assistant Director Student Support, the Assistant Director Service Development and a Funding, Graduations & Awards Officer. Selection will be made on the basis of financial need and attendance at the University.

Value of Award

Various awards are available, ranging from £200 up to £1,200. Each award is tenable for one year only, however previous applicants may reapply in subsequent years.

Eligibility Criteria

Theses awards are available to all students with disabilities regardless of programme, level or mode of study. However, proportionality will be taken into account (for example a full-time undergraduate may receive priority over a student attending one day a week) and preference will be given to those with the greatest financial need.

How to Apply

This scheme will typically open in November and close at the end of the December. An application form is now available for the 16/17 awards.
