Applications for 2020 are now closed, but you can still sign up for Funds4Uni here.
So far, 2020 has been a very difficult year for students financially. We want to demonstrate our commitment to supporting students with their funding needs so we are delighted to launch our second Funds4Uni scholarship, this time worth £1000, in partnership with easyfundraising and Currys PC World.
What’s on offer?
We are offering you the chance to win a cash scholarship worth £500. This money can be used to support you in your studies. Whether you decide to use it for food, accommodation, books, travel or bills, we don’t mind. It is up to you.
You will also receive £500 to spend on tech from Currys PC World to further support your studies.
Who is eligible?
It’s open to any current or prospective undergraduate or postgraduate student. You must be already studying at or applying to study at a UK university.
How do I apply for the scholarship?

- Create a free Funds4Uni account with easyfundraising – or already have an active Funds4Uni account
- Have at least one confirmed donation in your Funds4Uni account, raised between 10th August and 31st October 2020. This can be a donation you personally have raised or a donation raised by one of your supporters
- Submit a short answer (200 words) to the following question. “How has the global pandemic affected your student experience?” Send your answer to [email protected] making sure to include your full name and year of entry to university.

What is Funds4uni and how can it help me?
Funds4uni is a partnership between The Scholarship Hub and easyfundraising to help students fund their time at uni.
When you create a free Funds4Uni account, you’ll get free cashback towards your uni costs every time you or your family buy something from over 4,000 leading online shops including Amazon, eBay, Trainline, Asos, Just Eat, John Lewis, Uber Eats, H&M & Booking.com.
It’s free to sign up and use and what you buy won’t cost you anything extra. It’s just free money from the retailers you shop with anyway which you can use towards the cost of your rent, course materials, travel and more.
You’ve probably already got a shopping list of things you will need for the new term and with Funds4Uni you can collect cashback on everything you buy, from books and stationery from Waterstones to pots and pans from Wilko.
