Student Hardship Fund
All donations to the Student Hardship Fund go directly to
students to provide emergency grants and allow them to confidently continue their studies at Brunel.
without financial worries.
The hardship fund is set up to support students through difficult financial circumstances that may have otherwise meant they had to abandon their education. In the last two years, the need for financial support for students has been overwhelming and, including government support, we have made more than £1m available in total.
This has included fast-track funding for smaller, immediate needs such as food packs, to significant longer-term support to meet off-campus accommodation costs due to the pandemic. The need continues and the rising cost of living is only going to make it tougher for students to cover their costs while at Brunel.
