Sylvia Clarke Legacy Fund

Sylvia Clarke Legacy Fund

Funding support for Hallam students studying nursing, midwifery or allied health professions


Eligible students in the Department for Nursing and Midwifery and the Department of Allied Health Professions could access extra funding from the Sylvia Clarke Legacy Fund.

The fund is thanks to a generous donation from the estate of Sylvia Clarke, a community nurse who throughout her life always found ways to help those who needed it.

What you could get

The fund provides a limited number of scholarships and bursaries to students who are most at risk of financial hardship.

Scholarships are awarded to first year students, and provide £3,000 a year for three years, excluding placement years. The total award value is £9,000.

Bursaries are for final year students, and provide a smaller one-off payment.

Who can apply

You can apply if you:

  • are a home fee student paying tuition fees of £9,250,
  • have a household income below £62,311,
  • stated your household income in your student loan application, and agreed for it to be shared with your university,
  • are enrolled in the first or final year of an undergraduate degree,
  • are studying in the Department of Nursing and Midwifery or Department of Allied Health Professions.

We will give priority to students in one or more of our priority groups. The full eligibility criteria, including priority groups, are in the application guidance document below.
