Undergraduate Tuition Fee Grants are intended for students who do not receive SAAS tuition fee support due to previous study, academic repeats or residency issues.

In particular we are looking to support students who:

have previously withdrawn from a degree course and are now returning to university, sometimes after an HND, HNC or an Access Course, and are typically be missing a couple of years of funding in the first years of their new degree course.

are having to repeat a year of study for personal or health reasons and have already used up their “plus 1” year of funding

do not meet the SAAS residency requirements. For example, students with limited leave to remain who meet our own eligibility criteria.

Application forms and guidelines for the 2017-18 academic year are now available on the Trust's website.

Recently, the Trust launched a partnership with the University of Strathclyde to provide scholarships to asylum seekers. Under this  agreement, Strathclyde will provide a study cost bursary to the student and the Trust will cover the tuition fees at the Home rate. Applications can be made directly to the University of Strathclyde. We hope to expand this agreement to other universities.
