University of Lincoln Support Package
In addition to Government loans and grants, you may be eligible for one of two University-run support packages.
Designed around the needs of our students, and with input from our Students' Union, the University of Lincoln offers a bursary support package and accommodation discounts to enable you to receive extra funds while you study (unlike a fee waiver, which will only impact on how much you will repay after you have completed your studies).
The University participates in the National Scholarship Programme (NSP) which aims to help UK students from less advantaged backgrounds by providing a £3000 support package in the first year of their degree programme.
In order to be eligible for a NSP award, students must not have previously completed university level education and must have a household income of less than £25,000.
As the number of NSP awards is limited, the University of Lincoln provides the additional funding to ensure that all eligible UK students receive support.
The £3,000 support package is paid in three equal instalments and takes the form of an accommodation bursary for those who reside in University-allocated accommodation and bank transfers for those residing elsewhere.
All students who are awarded a £3000 financial support package in their first year, and who remain eligible, will receive a £700 bursary in both year two and year three.
Students with a household income of between £25,000 and £40,000 receive a bursary of £450 in each of years one, two and three.
The University of Lincoln offers a range of additional specific Scholarships and Bursaries for undergraduate students. Further information can be found here.
