• 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

Since 2015 we have supported 81 projects to a total on £18 million. 10 projects were funded in 2015, 30 in 2016, 22 in 2017 and 19 in 2018. Projects can last up to four years, the overriding criteria being that they enhance the students’ learning experiences.
