Leeds Hardship Fund
A fund to assist students facing financial hardship. Applications will be assessed according to University procedures. Awards will be made only in cases of genuine hardship, and where funding cannot be obtained from other sources (eg statutory student funding, savings or financial help from family).
Leeds Hardship Fund cannot help with tuition or exam fees. Find out about how to apply, the way that your funding requirements are assessed and the kinds of help available for eligible applicants.

How and when to apply
We are aware that many students are away from campus at the moment, so you can request a form by emailing the Funding team. Please include your name and student ID in the email. If you are eligible to apply, you will be sent an application form by return email, along with further instructions.
How you are assessed
We will assess your Leeds Hardship Fund application by comparing your income with allowable expenditure for the whole academic year. The maximum grant is £3,500 and the minimum is £50.
