The rules for different scholarships and grants can vary – some are intended to help meet living costs, others fund tuition fees (for non-EU/EEA citizens) and still others can be used for various educational costs.

Remember that other sources exist and that investing some time, effort, and creativity in researching and applying for scholarships and grants can have a significant impact on the actual financial cost to you of your education.
