Disabled Students Bursary Fund

A FUND TO RESPOND TO THE SUPPORT NEEDS OF DISABLED STUDENTS

In recognition of the additional support costs incurred by disabled students in pursuing their course of study a bursary fund has been set up to help offset these additional costs.

The Disabled Students Bursary Fund considers applications for grants towards services or equipment required by students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, at the University of Cambridge, where this supports their academic study, either directly or indirectly.

The Trustees may award grants up to £500 a person, and applications are considered at the beginning and end of each academic term. The primary focus of the fund is on one-off grants to students who are faced with additional costs that it is not possible to fund through other channels for example the Disabled Students Allowance.

For further information and an application form, please contact the University Disability Adviser, Disability Resource Centre, Keynes House, Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1QA.
