The Tom Fund awards grants to third-year BA Design students at Goldsmiths working on their final projects, to help them overcome financial barriers to realising an important conceptual aspect of their project. The award could be used for, but is not limited to, acquiring materials, travelling to undertake site specific work or hiring equipment.
Applications to the Tom Fund can be made at any time during the academic year, they are evaluated by a committee and decisions are made within days of application. The Tom Fund is run by volunteers and supported by donations.
