About this fund
The DSA Contribution refund is a university fund available to all English domiciled students who have applied for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) and have to pay £200 to access their recommended specialist equipment.
It is a non-repayable payment of £200, which is a refund and is awarded to students who have a household income of below £25,000. In most cases household income will be established by Student Finance England. Postgraduate students will be assessed by the university and therefore evidence will be required.
Who is eligible
The fund is open to English domicile undergraduate and postgraduate students who have a low household income below £25,000. Applicants must be fully enrolled on a full-time or part-time course.
You should have already applied for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) and be required to pay £200 to access your recommended specialist equipment.
