Cost of Living Awards

In recognition of the increase in the cost of living Queen Mary has committed additional funding to help students who are fully enrolled on a degree programme at Queen Mary in 2022/23. The amount you can be awarded is dependent on your housing circumstances:

Living in private accommodation – E.g renting from a landlord


Living in Halls of Residence


Living at home


The awards are intended to support students who are in financial need and have been financially impacted by the rising cost of living such as increased costs for travel, bills or food.

To apply, submit a Financial Assistance Fund application via the Scholarships and Bursaries section of MySIS and:

  • Write in the personal statement; ‘Cost of Living Award’
  • Provide the last two months of bank statements as evidence of your financial circumstances/hardship

You do not need to provide any additional evidence. Please note - funds are limited and applications will be considered until the funds are exhausted. Decisions will be made within 4 – 6 weeks of receiving your completed application.
