The Aston Support Fund is for Home (UK) students who are in genuine unexpected financial difficulties. If you apply and your application is successful there are different ways we may help you. This could be by awarding you a non-repayable grant, a short-term loan or providing you with specific money advice that is tailored to your needs.
The awards provided from this fund are limited to a maximum total of £2,500 in any academic year. You may be considered for an award if you are experiencing an unforeseen situation that will not be resolved in the near future and that has impacted on your financial capability to afford your basic living costs.
These awards are offered as part of a short-term solution of between 1 and 10 weeks and should not be relied upon each academic year.
