Students at university can experience unexpected hardships or may have access to additional opportunities. St George’s provides hardship funds to help support UK and International students. We’re also able to provide funds to help students taking part in sport at a high level or who have the opportunity to present academic papers during their programmes.

Alastair Hunter Sports Fund 2020/21

St George’s students have a strong tradition of combining their studies with sport. The costs of competing, combined with the high cost of living in London, can act as a barrier to some students taking part. Each year, students are invited to apply for a prize from the alumni-funded Alastair Hunter Sports Fund. The Fund exists to help students participating in a sport at a high level, or with the potential to do so, to continue fulfilling their sporting ambitions. From this year onwards, one student prize will be available at Gold (£300), Silver (£200) and Bronze (£100) level.  

Conference Presentation Fund 2020/21

Thanks to generous support from St George’s alumni donations, we are pleased to be able to offer a Conference Presentation Fund again this academic year.

Awards of up to £250 will be made to successful applicants in the form of a non-repayable grant to contribute to essential expenditure relating to oral or poster presentations at external events.  Costs to be considered may include registration fee, essential materials, travel and accommodation. 

Please read the guidance notes for full details about the eligibility criteria and the supporting documentation required with the application.
