£200 award towards DSA funded computer

Application for £200 award towards the cost of a computer provided through the Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA) 2023/24

Please note that these forms are for currently enrolled QMUL students who have applied for a Disabled Student’s Allowance (DSA) and have been asked to contribute £200 towards the cost of a computer. These students can apply to have the £200 paid by Queen Mary University of London via the Financial Assistance Fund.

If you have yet to enrol, or you have not had a response from your DSA needs assessment from either Student Finance England (or alternative DSA funding body) then you will not be able to submit this form until you have completed enrolment and received confirmation from SFE etc. that they expect you to pay £200 toward the price of a computer through the DSA.

How do I know if I am eligible for the £200 award?

 If you are an undergraduate student who:

  1. Is in receipt of the QMUL Bursary or
  2. Is in receipt of a means-tested NHS bursary or
  3. Has been assessed as having a household income of below £42,875

Please complete the form below:

If you are:

  1. an undergraduate not in receipt of the QMUL Bursary or a means-tested NHS bursary or your household income is above £42,875 or
  2. a postgraduate student

Please complete the full Financial Assistance application form and your eligibility will be assessed based on your financial need.

To apply: 

  • Log in to your MySis portal and go to the Scholarships and Bursaries page (click ‘More Options’ if not visible)
  • Click on ‘Apply for Scholarship or Bursary’
  • Select ‘Financial Assistance Fund’ from the funding type dropdown and complete the online application screens
