Funding, Grants and Awards

The University's Funding Search website is a useful tool for incoming postgraduate students to identify any grants or studentships for which they may be eligible.

If you nominated Homerton as your first or second choice of College on your application you will be eligible to apply for the Charter Graduate Award. This is a sum of £1,500, paid annually, renewable over a period of 3 years for PhDs, subject to satisfactory progress.

Homerton College is also part of the Open-Oxford-Cambridge Doctoral Partnership: we will offer up to two annual co-funded PhD awards from 2019-24. Applicants to the University will automatically be entered for this scheme if they are eligible, and transferred to Homerton if successful.

Once matriculated, current graduate students can apply for Research Grants to assist with expenses such as conference registration fees. Student Representation Awards are made to those who contribute at a University level to sports, societies, music, or drama. In addition, students who find themselves in severe hardship due to unforeseen financial difficulties may apply to the limited College Hardship Fund.
