Graduation Fund

We are working with the Students' Union to provide a Graduation Fund. The Graduation Fund aims to support Queen Mary students who are facing financial hardship with the cost of graduation. The fund covers the cost of cap and gown hire and is open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

It primarily aims to support students who otherwise could not afford the cost of attending graduation and we particularly encourage applications from students not in contact with their family (estranged), students who are parents or carers and students from lower income backgrounds.

How to apply

  1. Applications open 9am, Monday 13th February. You will need to complete the application form by 23:59pm, Tuesday 7th March.
  2. A panel composed of the Students' Union Executive Officers will consider applications.
  3. The Students’ Union will contact you by email with the outcome of your application by Thursday 9th March.
  4. In the meantime, when bookings open, please book your space at graduation and select your gown size. In the special requirements box, please add the following text 'I have applied for the Graduation Fund'. Do not pay for your tickets, cap or gown until the decision on your application has been made. Once a decision has been made, you will be contacted and advised if you have been successful. Those who are unsuccessful will be contacted by Your Graduation and asked to pay for their tickets and gown.


Please note: Unfortunately, we are unable to accept late applications, so please ensure you submit your application before the deadline. While we aim to support as many students as possible, we often receive a high volume of applications and cannot guarantee all applicants will receive funding. If you have any questions about the application process please email  r.truscott@qmul.ac.uk
