Undergraduate scholarships and bursaries
We are investing over £5 million in 2017–18 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 £1000 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."

This scholarship is for new undergraduate students* who started a course in 2017 or later and is dedicated to helping you succeed at Sheffield Hallam. Apply when you get here and you could receive up to a £2,000 financial award, as well as priority access to programmes designed to support your wellbeing, develop your employability and enhance your money management skills.
All eligible students can apply, however, you may be in one of our priority groups for support, for example if you
- have a household income of up to £42,875
- will be studying on a high cost or high intensity course (PDF)
- are a parent or have caring responsibilities
- will be leaving local authority care
- are estranged from family
- are a disabled student
- are a transgender student
Students who meet multiple criteria will be more likely to receive greater awards from the scholarship.
Applications for the scholarship will open in September and you can apply via shuspace after you've enrolled. You will be informed of the outcome of your application after the scheme closes in December.
* Please note that the scholarship is only open to students domiciled in the UK.
* There is a separate application cycle for eligible undergraduate health students starting in March
We award the High Achievement Scholarship to eligible full-time undergraduate students in recognition of the grades they achieve to get into university. To qualify, you must achieve A level grades ABB or higher, or BTEC grades DDM or higher and make Sheffield Hallam your firm choice.
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, we guarantee to provide you with a bursary package of £1,500 a year. This will either be one payment of £1,500 from the Care Leaver Bursary, or a payment to top up any other bursary award you receive to a maximum of £1,500.
"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."

Each year the university produces an access agreement, detailing the fees we wish to charge, financial support that we will offer to students and our activities to support widening participation. Access agreements are formally approved by the Office for Fair Access (OFFA) and you can find a full record of Sheffield Hallam University's access agreements on the OFFA website.
