UCL Financial Assistance Funds

The Financial Assistance Funds provide support to UCL students who are in unexpected financial need.

There are three separate funds. Each fund has specific eligibility criteria and you should check you are eligible before applying. More information, including how to apply, is available via these links:

  1. (Covid-19) Emergency Assistance Fund for Postgraduate Research Students (EAF-PGR)
  2. (Covid-19) Emergency Assistance Fund for Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught Students (EAF-UG/PGT)
  3. Financial Assistance Fund to support students with unforeseen financial hardship that is not related to Covid-19

Please note:

  • These funds support living costs (maintenance) only and cannot be awarded to pay for tuition fees
  • You cannot reapply to these funds in the same academic session unless your circumstances have materially changed (this includes for Covid-19 related support).

  • If you submit more than one application to these funds, the total maintenance support will be capped at the maximum award value (i.e. £2500, or £3000 for students with dependents).
