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.

Access to Learning Fund 2021/22

The Access to Learning Fund 2021/22, our hardship fund for home students, is open for applications.

Alastair Hunter Sports Fund 2021/22

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. One student prize is available at Gold (£300), Silver (£200) and Bronze (£100) level.

Please see below this this year’s application pack:

Conference Presentation Fund 2021/22

The Conference Presentation Fund aims to support students who have been invited to present St George’s work or research at an external conference in the UK or abroad during the 2021/22 academic year (1st September 2021 to 31st August 2022).  Presentations may be made in person or virtually.

Awards 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.  

EU & International Hardship Fund 2021/22

Thanks to the continued support of St George’s alumni donors, our 2021/22 EU & International Hardship Fund is open for applications.

EU & International students who are experiencing financial hardship due to unexpected circumstances which are beyond their control are encouraged to apply for support.
