The Mayflower Award
The Mayflower Award is broken down into two bands based on household income and awarded to first year students who are identified as being domiciled in England and whose household income is between £0 and £35,000. This award is granted automatically, so no separate application is needed. This award is paid in two instalments dependent on satisfactory attendance.
What Just Happened Fund
The What Just Happened Fund was established in 2013 by graduate April Watkins, and matched funding from the University. This fund provides help for students and their families if a Plymouth student is receiving emergency hospital care. The fund provides limited financial support for students and/or close family or friends for costs incurred at short notice, in the event of a serious injury or illness while studying at the university. The financial help available can be used towards the cost of travel, accommodation, and food and drink during the stay.
Financial Support Fund
If students find themselves undergoing significant financial difficulty during their studies, particularly if it may lead them to consider leaving higher education, they can apply for additional financial aid to alleviate their situation.
EU Hardship Fund
For EU students at Plymouth who find themselves in financial need that may jeopardise their studies, applying for the EU Hardship Fund can provide an additional support net where other sources of funding are unavailable. This is to assist students in accessing and remaining in Higher Education in light of unexpected financial hardship.
Helena Kennedy Foundation
A charitable foundation providing additional financial support to students who have had to overcome significant barriers to continue their education at university level. Every year FE Colleges, Adult Education Centres and Sixth Form Colleges are invited to nominate a student to receive a £1,500 bursary sponsored by the University of Plymouth.
