The 125 Fund

Every donation we receive this year will be matched pound for pound to enable us to create a transformative fund for the benefit of our students. By making a gift to The 125 Fund, you can help us to access a potential £125,000 from the Quintin Hogg Trust.

The 125 Fund launched in 2016 in celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the Regent Street Polytechnic, the predecessor institution to the University of Westminster, with a generous matched funding offer from the Quintin Hogg Trust. The Trust has pledged to match all donations made to The 125 Fund this academic year (2016/17) up to a total value of £125,000.

This innovative and flexible fund will enable us to award grants to Westminster students for projects and activities that enhance their employability and help them to achieve their full potential.

Applications are now open to current students. Visit the 125 Fund Awards page to find out more and apply.

Students will be able to apply for grants of between £150 and £2,000 to:

  • Help them purchase new equipment
  • Develop a project that is relevant to their studies, or
  • Aid with their personal or professional development

In these challenging and uncertain times, we need your help more than ever to ensure our students are equipped with the life skills and professional experience they need to get ahead and succeed in an increasingly competitive graduate job market.

If you share our passion for shaping the future of professional life and building the next generation of highly employable global citizens, your support can make this happen.

Support the 125 Fund

A donation of £100 with gift aid and matched funding would provide a grant of £225 for a student to invest in a personal or professional development opportunity.
