A new hardship fund has launched today (Wednesday, 27 May) to support students facing financial challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 Student Crisis Support Fund has been set up to provide support at a time when an increasing number of students are facing unexpected financial hardship in the wake of coronavirus.
Many students have lost part-time jobs and internships and may be facing increased costs associated with home learning such as lack of study equipment and internet access.
Some of our students may also have been directly affected by the disease or have additional caring responsibilities for affected family members for which the fund will provide crucial support.
The new fund is part of the wider COVID-19 Emergency Response Campaign that was successfully launched in March and has already raised more than £200,000 in support of the University’s research into COVID-19 and its treatment.
Fundraising is continuing and thanks to a legacy gift and generous support from Santander, we are able to match-fund any gifts made.
Students will be eligible if they are unable to work and they have no other financial support including parental support.
The fund will be open to all current University of Liverpool students including:

Awards will be made based on individual circumstances. Any grant award made from the fund will be a contribution to costs and is not intended to cover the whole shortfall in income.
You can find answers to frequently asked questions on our Money Advice and Guidance pages.
If you have any further queries about the COVID-19 Student Crisis Support Fund, please contact the Money Advice and Guidance Team on email@example.com.
International students can also contact the International Advice and Guidance team on IAGteam@liverpool.ac.uk.
