The Scottish Government introduced a Discretionary Fund for Nursing Students in academic year 2016/2017. 

Students who are enrolled on an pre-registration nursing course and are in receipt of the nursing bursary are eligible to apply.  

To apply, please see the 'How to apply' section of the Financial Assistance menu, which provides you with access to the Financial Assistance application form.  Applications will be processed in 15 working days from receipt. 

The funds given to the university are finite and therefore awards will be made at the university’s discretion and focussed on situations where students are either in an emergency situation or where other pressures on their finances are causing financial hardship. 

Applications will be treated in confidence within the Student Funding Unit.
