Student Health Association Assistance Fund

Student Health Association Assistance Fund logo


The Student Health Association Assistance Fund awards bursaries to students with disabilities so they can keep up with their studies. The maximum amount of each award is £500, and students must be involved in higher education on a full-time (or nearly full-time) basis.

Students must apply for Disabled Student Allowance before applying for this bursary. Students who are disabled but are not entitled to Disabled Students Allowance (either because they are ineligible or because they have been refused) are more likely to receive an award from the Student Disability Assistance Fund than students who are entitled to Disabled Students Allowance.

The Student Health Association Assistance Fund is a registered charity (no. 253984).
