The Edge Hill student support fund was setup to allow students who experience serious financial difficulties in funding their time here at the university a chance to flourish without disadvantage. Its main aim is to “support students whose expenses exceed their income. ” However, there is no automatic entitlement to an award.
The initiative is ran by Edge Hill University Student Services and is just another example of how the university takes care of each and every student who studies here.
This fund is designed to give students who do not receive enough in income such as student loans or bursaries a balanced budget. To apply you must have attempted to find other options open to you such as:
- Part time work
- Statutory Funding
If all of the above cannot help you then you can apply for the fund.
To apply for the fund, you must first attend a session in the university after you move in. You need to bring:
- Student ID
- Current bank balance
- A months Bank Statement
- Your debit card
The drop in session times can be found here! They take place in the Student Information Center.
The standard award, or max, is 3,000 pounds. You will receive a percentage of this, up to 100%, depending on your situation. You may also receive non-standard awards for unseen things such as household repairs or emergencies.
The application window opens mid October. Keep your eyes peeled for it, and remember if you need the support Edge Hill is there to offer it.
