Winter Covid Fund

The Winter Covid Fund deadline has been extended until 12 noon GMT on 23 March 2021.

Backed by the Scottish Government, the Winter Covid Fund is intended to help students struggling with additional financial worries caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Students must:

  • Be current matriculated students of Edinburgh Napier University;
  • Be able to demonstrate financial hardship stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic;
  • Provide 30 days of transactions on bank statement for all accounts (including non-UK accounts);
  • Provide a Rental or Tenancy agreement

The Winter Covid Fund is intended to support students with living and rent cost difficulties and we cannot pay tuition fees from this fund.

Priority groups are EU and International students, with UK students asked to apply to the Discretionary Fund where their application will be assessed against both funds. UK Nursing and Midwifery Students should apply for ring-fenced funds to support these areas.
