Extra money to pay for university

Skip to contents of guide

Bursaries, scholarships and awards

Students in higher education can apply for money directly from their university or college on top of any other student finance. You do not have to pay this money back.

Each university or college has their own rules about bursaries, scholarships and awards, for example:

  • who qualifies
  • how much you can get
  • how to apply

Any money you get is paid directly to you by your university or college.

Talk to your student support service to find out what’s available.
