Undergraduate scholarships and bursaries
We are investing almost £5 million in 2019–20 to provide a package of bursaries and financial support to our students including schemes which will mean even more students can access financial support from the University.
"I received a scholarship of £1,000 in my first year as a result of my grades at college, which really helped me make the most of my first year. It helped because I was still getting to grips with budgeting and I made a bit of a hash of it. It meant that I could afford to go to the events I wanted to in Sheffield."

We award the High Achievement Scholarship to eligible full-time undergraduate students in recognition of the grades they achieve to get into university.

We offer a support and scholarship programme for talented athletes. Scholarships of up to £6,000 are awarded to student athletes in addition to a comprehensive high performance support package.
If you're leaving care and commencing study with us in 2019/20, we guarantee to provide you with a bursary package of £3,500 a year.
The Care Leaver Package guarantees a bursary of up to £1,500 a year and an additional award from the Student Success Scholarship of £2,000.
"To not have to worry about my living situation and the costs involved in studying has been so reassuring. Because my past has been so unstable, I'm always thinking about the future, that's why I've used the financial support I receive to start saving for when I leave University and go off into the world."

The Department of Natural and Built Environment (NBE) together with Barratt Developments Plc. and Europa Capital are offering four scholarships for undergraduate students joining the department in September 2020 on an eligible course.
The scholarships have been made possible through the generous support of donors and aim to support students from disadvantaged or under-represented backgrounds.
Successful applicants will receive a non-repayable grant of £3,000 per year for three years, to help with living costs.
For fees and funding information on nursing, midwifery, allied health professions and social work courses please visit our health and social care webpages.
We will be offering two Sanctuary Scholarships (one for undergraduate and one for postgraduate study) from September 2019 to support talented students who have sought asylum in the UK. The scholarships are jointly funded by the University and through generous donations from former students.
Each year the university produces an Access and Participation Plan, detailing the fees we wish to charge, financial support that we will offer to students and our activities to support widening participation. Access and Participation Plans are formally approved by the Office for Students (OFS) and you can find a full record of Sheffield Hallam University's Access and Participation Plans on the OFS website.
We offer the Student Success Scholarship to priority group students, including those from low income backgrounds on undergraduate courses starting from 2017/18 onwards. To qualify you must be recognised as having home fee status by Student Finance England/Wales/NI and be a full or part time student liable for the tuition fee of £9,250 (pro rata for part time students). Payments typically range from £200 to £2,000 depending on your circumstances.
The Department of Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University is offering bursary awards of £500 - £2,000, generously supported by AESSEAL® to eligible female students. The bursary is for full time UK domiciled students who are recognised as having Home Fee status by Student Finance England/Wales/NI, who meet the eligibility criteria.
The bursaries are in place to ensure eligible students can continue through their studies in spite of any home and financial pressures they may face. They are awarded to students who can demonstrate a combination of academic achievement, ambition, and financial need.
