Student Grants

SBT Student Grant scheme (established 2017)

Every year, as part of our commitment to lifelong learning in the field of speech and language therapy, SBT is pleased to offer a series of student grants for individuals undertaking training to become a Speech and Language Therapist.

2018-19 recipient Megan Pickering (above) found her grant to be life-changing and 2019-20 grant recipient Lucy May joined us in September!

This year’s recipients

This year, we awarded three grants of £500 each. The successful applicants will also have access to various opportunities and support throughout their time at university.

They were:

  • Hana Ahmed
  • Neve Dee
  • Shauna Warren

Applications for 2021-22 will open in September.

Neve Dee

“It was a great surprise to receive news about my application being accepted! Being awarded the Grant was a massive step in the right direction. Not only has it helped to provide for essentials relating to my course such as textbooks and learning materials, but it’s also proven a huge boost of motivation for where I’m wanting to go in Speech Therapy. I’m loving my course, and am thankful for the experiences that led to me being able to apply for the Grant. Thank you SBT & Co.!”
