Scholarships and Prizes 2005:
UNIVERSITY HARDSHIP FUND
The Committee on Student Hardship makes awards on the grounds of unforeseeable hardship and may provide help in the form of a grant or loan, depending on the applicant's circumstances. Awards to successful applicants are made on the basis of a comparison of a student's finances for the current academic year with University estimates of finances required. The Committee meets on a termly basis but will not normally consider more than one application per student per year, unless there have been significant changes in a student's circumstance. Awards generally do not exceed £2000. All students registered for a degree at the University are eligible to apply to the Committee. Application forms should be collected from College Secretaries and returned to the Student Funding Officer by Monday of fourth week in Michaelmas and Hilary Terms, or by Friday of second week in Trinity Term.
