Graduation

Academic & Academic-related Conferences and Events

The College offers support to students attending conferences, symposia, workshops, etc. in Cambridge.


To Apply

Undergraduate students: should apply to the Student Opportunities Fund, with support from their Director of Studies if the event is related to their academic study, or from their Tutor in other cases.

Graduate students: should apply through the Research Awards scheme to support attendance at events relating to their academic work (with support from their supervisor and Tutor), and for grants through the Student Opportunities Fund for other activities (with support from their Tutor).


Students organising events under the auspices of University societies, charitable activities, etc., are encouraged to hold them at Fitzwilliam College. The cost of room bookings may in some circumstances be subsidised through an award from the Student Opportunities Fund.

Please contact the College Events Co-ordinator to enquire about room availability.

Unfortunately, the College is not able to support the organisational costs or overheads of conferences, symposia, workshops, etc,. held outside the College.
