Hardship Fund Grant

The University of Bradford Hardship Fund is a source of means-tested and discretionary financial assistance available from the University. It is intended to help students who have genuine and unavoidable financial difficulties to remain in Higher Education. Any help you receive from the Fund is usually non-repayable.

Who is eligible to make an application to the University of Bradford Hardship Fund?

Eligible home* students studying undergraduate, postgraduate and part-time courses (studying the equivalent of at least 50% of a full-time course) can apply. Overseas students, and EU students who are eligible for tuition fee support cannot apply to this fund.

To apply you must be fully enrolled, and if you are eligible to receive student loans you must have received your first instalment.

*A home student is defined as a person who meets certain residency conditions. Usually this means you must have an unrestricted right to enter and remain in the UK, and you have been ordinarily resident in the UK for three years prior to the start of your course. None of this time must have been wholly or mainly for the purpose of receiving full-time education.

If you feel you meet the criteria and would like to apply for a grant then you can download guidance notes and the relevant application form below. Please print your application form once completed and submit this with your supporting documents to the Hub in Richmond Building or send by post to:
