ESF is funding available to eligible students experiencing financial hardship during their studies who have exhausted all other means of funding.
You must have had your Training Grant application approved to apply for ESF.
You must also have applied to your university for any hardship or other available funding.
You will be able to download the ESF application form from your NHS LSF account.
You will need to show there is a shortfall between your income and day to day expenses which you are not able to manage by your own actions. We will use your living costs to assess this.
You can apply for ESF at any point throughout the academic year, there's no closing date.
