Young Adult Carers Bursary

The Young Adult Carers Bursary provides financial support to student young adult carers who are more likely to incur extra financial costs and greater challenges due to managing a caring role alongside their studies.

  • Undertaking a full-time, undergraduate course that started in September 2018 or later.
  • Eligible for home UK funding for living costs
  • Aged 25 or under when you started your course

Qualifying carers will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Amount awarded

£3,000 over the duration of your course. These payments may be made in addition to the Cardiff University Bursary.
