At Aston University we recognise that students who are care leavers or are estranged from their families might face different or additional challenges when coming to university. This can also be the case during the transition to life after graduation. If this applies to you then you may apply for the ‘Aston Support Fund Moving On Grant for Care Leavers and Estranged students’. This grant of £1000 aims to assist you with moving on costs such as rental deposits, relocation costs and the cost of attending your graduation. We don’t want you to feel unsupported by the University as you move into a new stage of your life or miss out on the chance to celebrate your achievements!
