Grant Funding

Eligible students can apply for one-off grant funding from the ICAS Foundation.  Individual circumstances are always taken into consideration, however examples may include:

  • A student's laptop breaks down partway through their final year and they require additional funding to replace this in order to complete their dissertation.
  • A student faces unexpected changes to their accommodation situation which requires them to urgently find new accommodation.

More information about our grant funding and award levels are available in the guidance notes.


Our Grant Funding programme is open to students currently studying accountancy or finance (or similar) at any UK university.

In addition:

  • Students should be UK citizens or UK residents with leave to remain (EU / international students are not eligible to apply).
  • The student's parental, guardian or household income should be under £34,000 per year.
  • Students should be in receipt of a government-funded bursary (from the Student Awards Agency Scotland, Student Finance England or similar) to study at university.


Contact the ICAS Foundation to request the grant application form and guidance notes.

We normally consider applications and confirm the outcome within three weeks of application receipt.
