Around 250,000 students get admitted into UK postgraduate programmes every year but do not enrol because they cannot secure the funds
For this very reason, many others shy away from applying altogether. StudentFunder is an inovative funding platform for post-graduate students in the UK, founded by people who struggled to fund their own education and now wish to help others finance theirs. The team is passionate about what they do and go out of their way to help people achieve their goals. Studentfuder won the RSA Centenary Prize in 2014, which provided an additional £3,000 to boost their original Catalyst grant. It was selected by others Fellows as the project with the most potential in a live vote at our Centenary Event in June.
