Grants are available from Somerville to help undergraduates in their second and third year with the cost of materials related to their course.


All enrolled undergraduates in the second and third year of their course can apply for this funding. Students who are on suspension and visiting students are not eligible. Students can only claim for purchases made between 1st October and 30th September in the current academic year. 

Award levels

Students can claim up to £50. This is the total amount available over both years. If purchases total more than this amount, students will be reimbursed for the first £50. It is possible to make multiple applications of smaller amounts. 

Application process

Please complete the application form and attach evidence of your purchases. The deadline for claims is either 30th September or your course completion date, whichever is sooner.

Application form



The award will be placed on your battels account and then paid into your UK bank account. Please note that the award will offset any existing battels account debits before the balance is paid.
