BU’s Tourism Support Fund offers non-repayable support to students facing financial difficulty during their studies on a tourism course.

Important: Make sure you have read the criteria below before applying for the fund.

Eligibility criteria and process

The BU Tourism Support Fund is open to all students (home/overseas fee payers and at UG/PG level) on a tourism course.

  • Students must complete all the relevant sections of this application form and provide a personal statement on why they are applying for this funding and how any funds will be used.
  • Students must provide bank statements as part of the application, as detailed in the evidence section, to demonstrate they are in financial difficulty and in need of the funding.
  • Students who are successful, will receive £500 paid directly to them. Students can only receive one award from this fund per academic year.
  • This is a limited fund, which means there is no guarantee of an award, even if students meet the criteria. Once the funds are exhausted, the fund will be closed.

Please be advised that applications can take up to 20 working days to be processed.
