Summer 2022 Support Fund
DEADLINE FOR CONTINUING STUDENTS: 1pm 19th August 2022
The Summer Student Support Fund is being administered by the Student Financial Support team within Student Services and is drawing on monies provided by the university and our generous alumni donors.
What is the Summer Student Support fund?
The Summer Student Support Fund has been created to assist students during the summer period who need extra financial help to meet costs that are not met from other sources of support, or students who have particular financial emergencies and as a result are at risk of leaving Higher Education. Monies for the Summer Student Support Fund have come from a range of University and Alumni Donor sources.
The Summer Student Support Fund can only be used to help with living costs and funds to an individual student are provided by the University based on an assessment of need.
Who can apply?
Any UK, EU or International undergraduate or postgraduate student currently enrolled at the University of Reading can make an application to the Student Summer Support Funds.
Please note that students must normally be enrolled for a minimum of 60 credits or 50% of a full-time course. Disabled students studying less than 50% because of their disability may apply if they study at least 25% of a full-time course. New part-time students who started their course on/after 1 September 2013 must be enrolled for a minimum of 30 credits or 25% of a full-time course.
How do I apply?
Go to the “Actions” menu and then click on “Financial Support”. From this page you will be able to read the guidance notes and click on the link “Begin/Continue application for financial support or bursary”. When you have completed your online application you will get an acknowledgment email sent to you.
If you get stuck with finding the application on the RISIS Web Portal then do take a look at the screen shots of the process.
When is the application deadline?
Current students need to apply by 1pm 19th August 2022.
The Summer 2020 Support Fund exists to help any eligible student in financial difficulty, however, we cannot guarantee there will be sufficient funds to meet every application we receive or all the costs a student might apply for. The Fund should not be seen as a main source of funding.
Applications with completed evidence are processed in date order and once funds are exhausted, no further awards are made.
Maximum individual award level is £1,000 for currently registered students.
