These web pages provide information for registered students at the University of Cambridge about a range of funding, additional to statutory and other state support, that is available to students who find themselves in need of extra financial assistance or who are otherwise facing exceptional and unexpected financial need.

The information here may also prove useful to the parents/guardians/advisers of students, as well as to College Tutors and other members of staff at the Collegiate University.

Prospective students, or registered students seeking funding to begin a new course, should visit the funding pages for either undergraduate or postgraduate study. You may also wish to visit the Cambridge Students' Union's Student Advice Service website.
