UA92 Kickstart Grant Scheme

University Academy 92 Kickstart Grants

University Academy 92 (UA92) is offering 92 grants of £5,000 to people from Greater Manchester that have been financially impacted by coronavirus, to help them access higher education.

Kickstart Grants aim to enable those who are out of work or living on reduced means due to the coronavirus outbreak, to study for a degree or a shorter course at University Academy 92 (UA92).

The financial support aims to help people who may not have previously considered higher education to gain qualifications and open new employment options in future.

Grants are available across all UA92’s degree and seven-month Certificate of Higher Education courses which include accounting and finance, business, computer science, media and sport.

Anyone that lives in Greater Manchester and has been financially impacted since 1 March 2020 is eligible to apply for a Kickstart Grant to begin studying with us in September, November 2020 or January 2021.
