The National Scholarship Programme (NSP) helps students whose families’ income is £25,000 a year or less. Universities and colleges decide who to give financial help to from this group.
NSP awards don’t affect any other student finance you might apply for, apart from the Tuition Fee Loan. You do not have to pay back this money.
The money available can vary for each university or college. It might include help with tuition fees, accommodation, a cash bursary of up to £1,000 or other help.
Money from the NSP is paid by universities and colleges and you have to apply directly to them. You can apply once you have got an offer for a place at your university or college. Contact them to find out if you qualify, how to apply and what kind of NSP funding they offer.
