Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) are available if you have a disability, long-term health condition, mental health condition, Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or specific learning difficulty. DSAs are government grants to help pay the essential extra study-related costs you may have, as a direct result of your disability. DSAs are administered through a number of funding bodies including, SFE, SFW, SFNI and SAAS. DSAs are also provided by the Research Councils, the NHS and Social Work Bursaries. The details below are based on the arrangements for SFE. Other funding bodies may have slightly different arrangements.
