A Maintenance Grant is available to help full-time higher education students from Northern Ireland. The grant is income assessed so if you want to be assessed for a grant you must supply your assessment authority with information about your household income. The amount of grant you will receive will depend on the level of your household income and your year of entry.
The grant is non-repayable and can be applied for at the same time as applying for a student maintenance loan, using the same application form.
The maximum grant available for new students from Northern Ireland in 2012/13 is £3,475. The actual amount a student will receive will depend upon their household income.
To find out more about these grants take a look at the Student Finance Northern Ireland website.
