Applications for this fund are currently open for the 2012/2013 academic year.
Lady Susan Cadbury was a strong supporter of the student population at Aston University and sadly passed away in 2010. In memory of Lady Susan and her involvement with the students of the University, Student Services have a fund for overseas (International & European Union) students who are experiencing financial hardship.
The purpose of the Fund is to provide international and European Union students with short term emergency help for day to day living costs if they find themselves in unexpected or sudden hardship that could have been neither expected nor predicted at the beginning of the academic year in which the application is made.
Previous successful applicants to the Fund have been assisted because of financial problems cause by natural disasters, bereavement and political upheaval.
It is not possible to be given assistance for tuition fees.
