Student Hardship Grant

Hundreds of UWE Bristol students require financial support each year. Without this support, students facing severe financial hardship might face having to give up their course and their hopes for the future. We aim to help as many as we can to make the most of the academic opportunities available.

“As a care leaver and lone parent with health problems I was extremely anxious about managing financially through the summer. This grant will make a big difference to me and my son.”

Charlotte, Health Professions Foundation Programme.

Student Experience Grant

Thanks to the support of alumni we are able to award Student Experience Grants to students at UWE Bristol. These grants help broaden horizons by supporting extra-curricular activities that enhance the student experience, such as trips and events both on and off campus. A couple examples of funded projects include:

Drama Society play - We awarded a grant to the Drama Society that helped purchase props and costumes for their performance at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Valuable professional experience was gained by all those involved, boosting their employability and confidence.

Wheelchair basketball - Our grant funded 12 wheelchairs to enable individuals who may have a disability to play against their peers.

“The wheelchairs you funded have made a huge difference. We’ve already had 750 children from 49 schools use them as part of our Disability Sport Programme. Students have been able to get involved in a new sport. Thank you.”

Alex, Head of Sport, UWE Bristol.
