The Aston Support Fund offers financial support to students paying Home tuition fees who are in unexpected financial difficulties.

The grants offered are considered by assessing your circumstances on a case by case basis. You may be considered for financial assistance if you are experiencing an unforeseen situation that will not be resolved in the immediate future and which has impacted on your financial capability to afford your basic living costs.

These funds are for fully-enrolled Aston University students. If you are not fully enrolled when you apply your application will be rejected.

To apply please visit and complete the Aston Support Fund application form.

If you have any questions about these funds please email the Student Funding Team - Financial Support.

You may like to book an appointment with Hub advisors prior to applying for hardship funds to ensure that you have explored all funding avenues. This can be done by logging into the Hub's booking system.

Please ensure you have read the policy before applying for the Fund
