Community Jameel Hardship Fund

Community Jameel has pledged support to create the Community Jameel Hardship Fund at the Royal College of Music for an initial period of three years.

The Community Jameel Hardship Fund will be used to support RCM students who are experiencing unexpected financial difficulty and all students are eligible to apply.

The new fund represents a continuation of the RCM’s relationship with Community Jameel, which in November 2019 saw the launch of a scholarship supported by Community Jameel in partnership with the Andrea Bocelli Foundation.

Additionally, any surplus in the fund will provide scholarship support for international students, with a preference for students from the Arab world.

More than 50% of current students receive some financial support, thanks to the generosity of individuals, legators, companies and charitable trusts.

If you are a student interested in applying to the fund, please contact Student Services.
