Scottish Welfare Fund Crisis Grant

The Scottish Welfare Fund offers a Crisis Grant for those on a low income to cover the costs of an emergency. If you are deemed eligible, you may get help with urgent living costs for things such as food and heating bills.

The grants are one-off payments and can’t be given to support your income on a long-term basis.

Please note that unfortunately International Students on a Tier 4 visa with no recourse to public funds are NOT eligible for this grant. Covid-19 has not changed anything with regards to this and you will not be considered as this may impact on your Visa status. UKCISA provide regular updates and advice for International students during the Covid 19 pandemic including Visa related matters.
