Why we need you

Your donations will go towards supporting students facing significant barriers to study, allowing them access to education.

In the 2023/24 academic year, you supported 10 new scholarships which included carers, parents, mature students, and those estranged from their families. Despite our increase in scholarship provision for this academic year, we still had to turn down 63% of applications.

With your support, we can do more and help open the doors of higher education, allowing more students to reach their full potential.

"Thinking the only option to be financially secure was to leave University and get a full-time job, I spoke with the funding team. They were so helpful and suggested I applied for the scholarship. Hearing I had received the scholarship was monumental! The difference the money made to myself, and my family was unmeasurable."

Finances should not be a barrier to education. You can help students of all ages and backgrounds by donating towards an Alumni-funded scholarship.
