Apply to the Alumni Fund

Got a great idea for something that could improve student experience? The Alumni Fund could provide between £100 and £3,000 to support your project.

What is the Alumni Fund?

The Alumni Fund exists thanks to generous donations by alumni and friends of Royal Holloway, who donate every year to support projects and initiatives which enrich the student experience at Royal Holloway. Student led groups* can apply to the Alumni Fund for anything between £100 and £3,000 to support a project.

We prioritise bids that support the College strategy and are innovative and bring new opportunities to students, or that take existing activities to a new audience. Successful bids receive money as a grant, and also benefit from the support of College staff as they follow up on the bid's progress.
