At Imperial we are passionate about supporting our students however we can throughout their studies. Every student is different, and we provide financial assistance in a number of different ways to ensure that we meet their needs as best we can. 

Donations from alumni are at the heart of what we do, as they enable us to be more flexible and proactive with the aid we give to our students. Gifts from the Imperial community help ensure that financial barriers do not stand in the way of a talented student and their dreams, and are often the difference between someone completing their studies or being forced to leave them behind. You can help us continue removing those barriers for as many of our students as possible, and give them the opportunity to succeed in their College life and beyond. 

Donations to the Student Assistance Fund provide essential aid to disadvantaged and deserving students through a number of programmes at Imperial including hardship relief, bursaries, President's Scholarships and Faculty-level funds. With your help, we can move quickly to provide support to those students who need it most.

Your impact in action 

The grant has significantly helped me during a very tough year. When I first moved to London, I was struggling to find a job due to the pandemic. I was extremely stressed about money and I was finding it difficult to focus on my studies. Since receiving the financial support from the fund it has felt like a weight had been lifted, I have really been able to focus on my work and embrace everything Imperial has to offer. I would just like to say a massive thank you, not just from me but from anyone that has received help from the support fund.
