Giving to Loughborough



Help us to award more scholarships and bursaries, enabling disadvantaged, high-achieving young people to realise their potential.

We are determined that talented individuals should not be prevented from pursuing a university education due to their financial situation or background.

For many, the transition from school to university is an exciting time, full of new opportunities and opening doors. 

However, with increased course fees, not to mention accommodation costs and textbooks, the financial implications can be incredibly daunting.

Our scholarship programmes gives talented students from disadvantaged backgrounds the chance to further their education, by supporting them through their time at University. Many of the recipients of these awards have experienced difficult times, including coming from low-income families or facing bereavement.

Our scholars receive £3,000 for each year of their degree to help purchase academic equipment and books, to cover the cost of travel and accommodation, and help them take part in extracurricular activities.

Your gift; your impact

Meet Laura...

Laura is a fourth-year student studying Sports and Exercise Science at Loughborough and was awarded a life-changing scholarship. The impact that your support has had on her and her family has been huge:

"Just that extra bit of financial support can have such a positive impact on someone’s life. No one can help their household income or their background, so by giving students the chance to flourish and develop during their time at university, it’s probably one of the best gifts anyone could ever give."

Did you know?

For every single Scholarship awarded, there are a further 10 applicants who we are unable to support. Your contribution will ensure that talented young people from less advantaged backgrounds are able to continue their education.

Postgraduate and PhD scholarships

We also have a broad programme of scholarships available for postgraduate students at Masters and PhD level which are generously funded by donations from alumni, companies, trusts and foundations and friends. These students are the experts and innovators of the future.

Your donation can help them take their learning to a higher and increasingly specialist level.
