What is Funds4uni?
Funds4uni is a partnership between The Scholarship Hub and easyfundraising where students can earn free cashback towards their uni costs when they or their families shop online with leading online retailers. It’s free to sign up and use and your purchases don’t cost anything extra. It’s just free money from the retailers you and your family are shopping with anyway.
Every time you or your family buy something from over 4,300 shops including Amazon, eBay, Trainline, Asos, Just Eat, Argos, Boohoo, Tesco & Booking.com, the retailer you shop with sends you cashback which you can use towards the cost of your rent, course materials, travel and more.
How do I get 3 supporters?
Most students ask parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends to sign up to support them and as it costs them nothing, they are usually quite willing. Once you have created your Funds4Uni account, you will be a given unique link that they can use to register and support you via their everyday online shopping.
How will my application be judged?
The judges will be looking to award the money to a student whose answer shows that the money will have the greatest impact on their likely academic success, their well-being, or their community
