College Grants

Former students of the College and other benefactors have made generous gifts to the College to provide grants and bursaries for students studying at St Hilda's. These funds are available for many uses, including travel for study and research, vacation residence, extra-curricular activities, the purchase of books, music tuition, language courses and general financial support. In addition there are several subject-specific funds, particularly in the humanities.

Some examples of the generous funds available can be found below:

St Hilda's also offers several prizes and bursaries for our students to apply for after their graduation, including the Hildegard Prize to assist in undertaking postgraduate research, and the Teach First Bursary, to which we contribute £500 each year.
