How do I apply to the Sembal & Trump Clinical Medicine Funds?

Clinical medicine students on the 2nd BM or accelerated graduate entry medicine course are entitled to claim up to £173 from the Sembal Fund towards books and equipment and up to £530 from the Trump Fund towards travel and other expenses associated with their elective. Claims may be submitted at any point during the course.

Students should apply to the Academic Office (Email: college.office@stcatz.ox.ac.uk) in writing, giving details of the amount of funding required and the use to which it will be put, together with their bank details. A letter of support from the student's tutor must also be supplied together with (copies of) receipts.

How do I apply to the Graduate Research Expenses Fund?

A small fund exists to which graduates may apply for help with research expenses, particularly for fieldwork, attendance at conferences, or visiting libraries with material unobtainable in Oxford. It can also be used for help towards the costs of books, printing, photocopying, thesis binding and continuation charges.

Full-time graduate students accrue an entitlement to claim £203 for each year that they have been enrolled and paying University and College fees for their current programme of study, up to a maximum of three years, and part-time graduate students accrue an entitlement to claim £101.50 for each year that they have been enrolled and paying University and College fees for their current programme of study, up to a maximum of six years. This amount may be carried forward if it was not spent in the year in which it was accrued, but it cannot be carried forward to a new programme of study, and the student must be a current enrolled graduate member of the University to be eligible to apply. A claim may be submitted at any point during the academic year.

Students should apply in writing to the Academic Office (Email: college.office@stcatz.ox.ac.uk), giving details of the amount of funding required and the use to which it will be put, together with their bank details. A letter of support from the student's supervisor must also be supplied. Afterwards the applicant should supply (copies of) receipts and a brief write-up.

Applicants are expected to apply to their Department or Faculty as well as to the College for financial support.
