Postgraduate research financial support
King’s offers Financial Aid for PGR students. As a result of the current Coronavirus pandemic, we understand that many of our students have concerns about money and finances.
King’s PGR students who have been directly affected financially by the ongoing crisis may be eligible for financial support through the PGR financial aid scheme.
Important to know: This scheme does not address issues around additional stipends, tuition fees or King’s Residences accommodation fee reduction or pro-rating, which should be addressed separately. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please see our Hardship Funds and get support from the Money & Advice team.
