Student Emergency Assistance Fund – COVID-19: If you are experiencing financial hardship, please read below to apply
The University has made funding available to support quick response grants for UNE students who are experiencing financial hardship which impacts their ability to continue their academic studies.
The grants are intended for students who find themselves in unexpected or unforeseen financial hardship, specifically as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The fund does not have the capacity to support a recipient with ongoing costs, and students should note that funds, where provided, are done so on a one-off basis and there are limits in terms of how much funding is available or can be provided to each applicant.
This is available to both online and on campus studies, who are studying undergraduate, honours, coursework postgraduate or higher degree research courses.
Applications for a grant will be administered by the University Scholarships, Prizes & Awards Team. We’d encourage you to have a confidential and private discussion with Student Advocacy and Welfare or your Head of College about your circumstances and submitting an application for scholarship funds.
You can find further details, as well as the steps to apply on the Student Emergency Assistance Fund – COVID-19 page.
