Graduation Support Fund

We understand that some students may be unable to attend their graduation ceremony if they cannot meet the cost of tickets for their guests and/or gown hire. Students who are facing financial hardship have the opportunity to submit an application to receive up to two guest tickets and gown hire free of charge from the Graduation Support Fund (for their ceremony day).

There is a limited number of Graduation Support Funds available and these will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis, if all application criteria are met. This fund is for UK undergraduates or postgraduates only.

If you are not eligible or apply and are unsuccessful but find yourself in financial difficulty, you may wish to consider applying to the Student Support Fund (via My Kingston). For details about this fund, and other financial support available, please visit the Money pages on MyKingston for more information.

Applications to the Graduation Support Fund for July 2024 have now closed; no further applications can be made.
