The Small Emergency Grant is very short-term assistance for students who have no or very little funding available. It's usually paid in denominations of £15 (depending on your circumstances) and is generally paid in supermarket vouchers.
You aren't required to pay this back, although if you have the ability to do so at a later date, it will mean that we can assist other students.
Before we can consider any request:
- You must be formally enrolled on to a BU course
- You must be able to show that you have very little or no funds remaining (this would include money available in your overdraft).
