Scholarships and Prizes 2007:
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 that student's circumstances. Awards generally do not exceed £2,000. All students registered for a degree at the University are eligible to apply to the Committee.
You should collect a form from your College Secretary and visit the college Hardship Officer at your College before completing the application. Your application will need to be supported by both your college and your tutor/supervisor.
Deadlines: Monday of fourth week (Friday of second week in Trinity Term). All parts of the application form must have been received by these dates. These should be sent to the Student Funding and Access Office, University Offices. The Committee on Student Hardship meets in sixth week (fourth week in Trinity term).
Application forms are available from College Secretaries, College Hardship Officers and the Student Funding and Access Office.
