Student support

For disabled and disadvantaged students

If you have a recognised disability or consider yourself to be disadvantaged in comparison to your peers, we may be able to provide financial assistance.

We understand the pressures of supporting yourself through higher education. The worry of putting your degree in jeopardy due to spiralling financial commitments can be a huge burden.

We’re committed to supporting our future civil engineers.

So when times get tough, you can rely on us to help you bridge the gap.

How we can help

If your circumstances have changed since starting your course and you have already done everything you can to help your situation, please get in touch. We’re here to help if you’re struggling to make ends meet.

Our grants of up to £1,000 per term could be put towards your living expenses, travel, equipment costs or course materials. Tuition fees are not covered by the scheme.

How we make awards

Our aim is simple: to ensure all disabled and disadvantaged students currently studying an ICE accredited course at a UK university or college receive a helping hand in times of need.

Because everyone is different, each case is considered on an individual basis. As long as you are studying on an accredited undergraduate course, you have funding in place for your tuition fees and have been an ICE Student member for at least a year, you could be eligible for our support.

Applications can be made at any time during the academic year. So if you feel as if your finances are affecting your studies, please get in touch with our friendly team to discuss your eligibility.
