Administered by the Dean, this fund exists to provide emergency financial assistance by way of grants and loans. The fund is not extensive; small grants and loans can only be provided to alleviate short-term financial difficulties of an unexpected kind. The fund cannot assist with expenses related to study or research.
Ph.D. students requiring all or part of a fourth year, and whose funding will terminate at the end of three years, should consult their Graduate Tutor or the Dean at least three months before their fourth year begins.
Details of the various awards, scholarships, hardship funds and other student support funds can be found in CamFunds, the online directory of awards and funds administered by the University (including departments, faculties, colleges, central offices and other internal sponsors).
