Prevent the scrapping of the maintenance grant.
All Constituencies with Signatures
Note: Signatures by constituency may not add up to the total number of signatures. That's because the government e-petition site doesn't validate postcodes, and sometimes people either deliberately or accidentally mis-type them.
From 2016 onwards, the maintenance loan, which was originally put in place to provide assistance to low income families, will be withdrawn. This petition hopes not only to prevent this from occurring but additionally, to offer students a voice with which to be heard in Parliament.
This affects all those attending University from next year onwards. Please share this petition on all forms of media so that we can hope to have the non- repayable maintenance grant reinstated.
