Do you need a bit of a helping hand when it comes to covering the costs of your university studies? Well, we could have just the thing for you… 

Santander Universities and JS Group have teamed up to bring you the Santander Aspire Tech Grant - the first in a series of Santander Universities’ grants that will be awarded directly to students in the UK.

On a mission to support students from diverse backgrounds into university, work and self-employment, since 2007 Santander Universities has donated over £100 million to support students through partnerships with universities across the UK.


And now Santander Universities, is launching a new scheme to support students with resources for their studies. 

Santander Universities will provide 400 students from universities across the UK with the opportunity to receive a Santander Aspire Tech Grant worth up to £1000. 

Successful applicants will be able to use their grant to purchase from a wide variety of resources on the Santander Aspire Tech webstore including IT equipment and support such as laptops, tablets, printers, broadband connectivity, noise cancelling headphones and other equipment to ensure you can study both on and off campus. 

There will also be resources available to support student mental health and wellbeing. 

Matt Hutnell, Director, Santander Universities UK, said: “Santander is committed to supporting higher education as well as local communities across the UK so we’re pleased to be launching a new scheme which will support students who currently don’t have access to the technology they need for their studies. 


“It’s fantastic to be working alongside JS Group to further build on our ongoing work with our partner universities to support those who need it the most.” 

Peter Gray, CEO of JS Group, added: “It is a pleasure to be working with the team at Santander Universities who have such a great track record in supporting students here in the UK and globally.  

“This scheme will not only provide timely financial support for students it will also provide very useful experience and feedback on engaging directly with students that will inform more ambitious programmes in the future.”

So, what exactly is on offer? There are 200 Grants of £50; 150 Grants of £150; 45 Grants of £500; and 5 Grants of £1,000 up for grabs, with all winners chosen at random. 

Applications for the new grants can be made online here, with the deadline set at 11pm on August 25th 2021.
