Will a FAF grant affect my benefit entitlement

Will a FAF grant affect my benefit entitlement?

Any grant you get from the FAF will not be counted as income for benefits, because it is paid to you for course related costs. This means that your benefit entitlement should not be affected. If your benefit office asks for documentation to prove that the FAF grant is for course related costs, please ask at the Student Enquiry Centre, ground floor, Queens’ Building for a letter, or email
