The University of East Anglia (UEA) is committed to widening participation to higher education (HE). The aim of this Travel Fund is to bring more individuals, who have specific characteristics typically underrepresented in HE on to campus with a view to supporting their progression to HE. We can offer payment for a return journey to the University to enable these students to participate in our Recruitment and Outreach events. Eligible students attending UEA Applicant Days may also be able to claim for the cost of overnight accommodation. However, this is granted on a discretionary basis and is subject to funding.
The Eligibility Criteria and Application Form can be found here. Please note this application (unless submitted by a mature student) must be signed by a supporting teacher. The application will then be reviewed by the panel who will meet monthly. Applicants will be notified in writing within 2 weeks of an outcome.
If you have any questions about the Travel Fund please contact James.Ferguson@uea.ac.uk or call 01603 591525.
