The Student Development Fund
At Queen Margaret University we are committed to supporting our students, helping them make the most of the opportunities available to them and ensuring that they have the best possible experience as a QMU student.
The Student Development Fund exists thanks to the generous donations of alumni, friends and QMU staff whose support ensures that all of our students have the opportunity to get their big ideas off the ground and to develop projects that reflect their enthusiasm, creativity and initiative.
Gift Acceptance Policy
What is it?
The Student Development Fund is an opportunities fund designed to support student-led projects, initiatives and activities which are UK-based and can be demonstrated to have a positive benefit on our students, and/or the university and/or the wider community.
The funding is available to all individuals, clubs and societies or other groups made up of QMU students.
What does it fund?
The fund is not a hardship fund but has been designed to support projects which would not happen without receiving financial support.
In the past year, the Student Development Fund has supported:
- MSc Art Psychotherapy students organise their End of Year Art Exhibition.
- A group of students studying BA (Hons) Drama & Performance write, produce and perform at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
- A BA (Hons) Drama & Performance student attend an aerial performance skills course and purchase aerial performance equipment.
- A BA (Hons) Media student buy materials and software to further develop his photography skills.
