Quintin Hogg Trust - Home
  • Quintin Hogg Trust

    A unique source of investment and financial support for the students of the University of Westminster.

The Trust and Memorial Fund were set up in 1903 in memory of Quintin Hogg, who founded the Regent Street Polytechnic which became the University of Westminster.

In keeping with Quintin Hogg’s lifelong work, the Quintin Hogg Trust’s sole purpose is to support the advancement of education for the students of the University – which it does through funding a broad range of projects and activities proposed by University staff and students.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE TRUST

In 2016, we supported a total of 30 applications and another 22 in 2017, with sums allocated going up to £11m in total.

WHO CAN APPLY FOR FUNDING

In the past, the Trust has:

  • Supported the refurbishment of teaching and learning facilities, funding the purchase of new equipment for the University’s photo labs
  • Underpinned the refurbishment of historic premises used by students, such as the Regent Street Cinema
  • Provided funding to support additional doctoral students
  • Shared the cost of students going on field trips, attending international conferences and competitions and undertaking placements abroad

But these are only examples: we invite applications from across the University for funding to support any activities that will benefit students’ education.
