Emergency Student Support Fund available

The Emergency Student Support Fund has reopened. Application deadline: Tuesday 28 September 2021.

The Emergency Student Support Fund (ESSF) providese short-term financial support for the unanticipated needs of York students caused or exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Students can apply for a maximum of £500 of non-repayable funding.

All returning students who are fully-registered at the University of York on a degree-awarding programme (UG, PGT or PGR, full- or part-time) are eligible to apply for ESSF funding. Note: the funding is not open to students starting their studies with us this autumn.

The funding can be used for: 

  • food/living costs
  • accommodation
  • IT equipment costs

The new ESSF round will close on Tuesday 28 September 2021.
