For the third year in a row, the OU is teaming up with Santander Universities to offer students help with their finances. Thanks to Santander Universities, this year 10 lucky students will get the chance to win £1000 cash in a free draw.
To enter, OU students need to be currently enrolled, be based in the UK, and then sign up via Santander’s Scholarship Platform. Enrolment is open now with the closing date being 30 November 2023.
The offer of support for students couldn’t come at a better time with the cost-of-living crisis continuing to make it a challenging winter for students in the UK.
One of last year’s lucky winners at the OU, Federica Mento, has encouraged students to get involved:
From applicant to winner! Thanks to Santander’s Brighter Futures Grants I now have the tools to excel in my studies. Join this incredible initiative and let your aspiration take flight!”Federica Mento

The Open University renewed its successful partnership with Santander Universities last year, which includes this programme of £10,000 in grants for students to support their studies through the Santander Scholarship Platform.
The winners will be announced by 8 December 2023.
