The Merton College Compassionate Fund exists to assist members of the College and their dependents who find themselves in financial difficulty. Applications are warmly welcomed from Mertonians at times of unforeseen financial hardship (which may be the result of unemployment, illness, bereavement, or other changes in personal circumstances). Grants do not normally exceed £3,000.
Applications are considered by the trustees of the Compassionate Fund: the Warden, the President and Chair of the Merton Society, Professor Jenny Payne and the Chaplain. For further information, please contact the Chaplain by emailing The Revd Canon Dr Simon Jones.
