Additional Funding

There is extra funding available in addition to your statutory funding package which can be based upon academic merit, low income and whether you are experiencing hardship. 

Find out here about other possible sources of funding.

LEEDS HARDSHIP FUND

The Leeds Hardship Fund (LHF) provides discretionary grants for University of Leeds students who are experiencing financial hardship. Applications are means tested and depend upon individual circumstances.  You can apply at any point in your study.  You can apply for support only for the academic year you are in. 

NHS HARDSHIP GRANT

This is a hardship grant for medical and dental students who are experiencing financial hardship and have applied for and exhausted all other forms of support, including the Leeds Hardship Fund (LHF).  See here for further information.

LEEDS FINANCIAL SUPPORT

Leeds Financial Support (LFS) is available  to Medical and Dental students in the first four years of study who meet the eligibility criteria.  This is in addition to your standard funding.  You will not be eligible for the LFS when you progress into your 5th Year of study and are supported by the NHS as they will be paying your fees which means that you are ineligible.
