Find-a-Fund Application System

Each year the University receives philanthropic funding from a variety of benefactors to support students through scholarships and grants. The eligibility criteria required for a student to receive one of these awards is decided in conjunction with the benefactors.

Current students can apply using the new Find-a-Fund Application System, which uses your student record and application questions to match you to the available philanthropic funds you may be eligible for. This means you can be confident that you have explored all the philanthropic funding options available to you at Edinburgh Napier University.

An outcome to your Find-a-Fund application will be provided via email. Please allow up to 28 days for your application to be assessed.

Discretionary and Childcare Funding
Current Edinburgh Napier University students may also be eligible to apply to the discretionary and childcare funds that are supported through Scottish Funding Council or University budget. Due to the specific eligibility criteria of these funds, they are separate to the Find-a-Fund Application Form and require their own application processes. Please click here to visit Student Funding & Money pages on myNapier to find more information on these funds and others you may also wish to apply to.
