The Snowdon Trust: grants of up to £5,000 are available to UK students aged over 16 with a disability-related study cost to help them complete their studies

If you have a disability-related study cost which is not fully covered by statutory funding, you can apply to the Snowdon Trust for a grant of up to £5,000 to help you complete your studies. 

Please note that the Snowdon Trust will only fund applicants who are studying at a UK registered further education or higher education institution. The Trust cannot provide funding for disability-related study costs in school.

Applicants must be over 16 to be eligible for a Snowdon Grant. There is no upper age limit but please be aware that grants are more likely to be awarded where applicants can provide evidence of the future plans their studies will help them achieve.

The Snowdon Trust can support individuals who identify as experiencing one/multiple/all of the following:

o A learning difference (e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia or AD(H)D).
o A vision impairment uncorrected by glasses (e.g. blindness or partial sight).
o A hearing impairment (e.g. D/deafness or partial hearing).
o A physical impairment or challenges with mobility (e.g. climbing stairs or uneven surfaces) or dexterity (e.g. using a keyboard or laboratory equipment).
o A social, behavioural or communication impairment (e.g. an autistic spectrum condition or Tourette’s Syndrome), and/or
o A long-term illness or health condition which may involve pain or cause fatigue, loss of concentration or breathing difficulties – including any effects from taking associated medication.

The Trust does not accept applications from individuals who experience a mental health condition unless they also identify as living with one or more of the impairments listed above.
