General Information

The Lancaster Enabling and Access Fund is offered to students who have incurred costs as a result of a disability or medical condition.  The costs must be related to your studies and the fund cannot be used towards general living costs or personal care.

This fund cannot be used to pay for IT equipment, including the £200 student contribution towards a computer awarded via the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).

The fund is designed to assist students who are unable to meet incurred costs. UK undergraduate students must be in receipt of the Lancaster Bursary with an assessed household income below £42,620 for entry prior to and including 2017 and £30,000 for entry in 2018 onwards. Early applications for this award are encouraged as it is a finite resource and once all money has been allocated, further awards will not be possible.

UK/ EU and International postgraduate students must be able to provide evidence of income and bank statements in order for us to carry out a financial assessment.

EU and International students will be required to supply evidence of household (parental income).

Students must supply evidence of the disability prior to applying.
