OfS distributes hardship funding amid coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

The Office for Students (OfS) has announced the details of £50m in additional funding amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which is to be used to address student hardship. The OfS considers three key priorities in distributing the fund: that the funding should be aimed at those providers that recruit and support disadvantaged students, that the £40m prioritised for rent-related hardship is distributed in a way giving those students renting student accommodation the maximum opportunity to benefit from it, and that the funding is available as quick as possible for students.
