Ten students to win a £1,000 financial boost thanks to Santander

Once again the OU has teamed up with Santander Universities to offer students help with their finances throughout 2024.

Thanks to Santander Universities, 10 lucky students will get the chance to win £1,000 cash in a free draw.

All OU students are eligible to enter. Just sign up via the Santander Open Academy. Enrolment is open now and will close at 11pm (GMT) on 29 March 2024.

Winners can spend their Brighter Futures Grant on whatever they need, whether that be rent, bills, groceries, textbooks or technology. The funding boost is designed to alleviate financial pressures so OU students can focus on their studies.

Santander Universities is the philanthropic arm of Santander that supports 75 university partners with funding and student opportunities in education, employability and entrepreneurship.

The Open University renewed its successful partnership with Santander Universities in 2022, which includes this programme of £10,000 in grants for students to support their studies through the Santander Open Academy.
