Student placement

Hi daughter is 3rd year university but is in a placement year. 

Her placement is with a charity linked to a hospital so is not a wage earning placement. She gets the very basic loan  as not at uni for this year. 

She will be travelling daily and already had first 5 weeks of train tickets booked. Her train fare has now doubled  already. And we are now looking at between £30-£40 per day. 

is anyone aware of any other funding she can try and apply for?  
LBM May 2012 Debt £29,500 - Jan 2013 - £18,674
Pay off as much as you can in 2013 £523/£9000
Jan 2013 - No more buying lunches, or hot water!!!!
