Most students studying in Higher Education that are under the age of 25 are considered financially dependent on their parents when being assessed for their student funding. Although students estranged from their parents are an exception to this rule, it can nonetheless be difficult for them to access higher education without the support (financial and/or otherwise) of their families. This is where the Humber Grant can help you. You can receive up to a maximum of £1000, which will include book vouchers. It is paid in two instalments usually in December and March.
