Leave a gift in your Will

Thank you for considering leaving Loughborough University in your Will. By leaving a gift of this kind you are becoming part of the Loughborough story for generations to come and leaving your legacy at your University. You will be providing students with scholarships to come to Loughborough for the same life changing experience that you had, funding research that changes lives and ensuring that Loughborough remains a World leading institution that you are proud of for generations to come.

The Impact your gift can make

''Words cannot explain how honoured I am to receive this Scholarship. I do believe that this will change my life. The Scholarship will help me lighten my financial burden which I will face as a student. This will allow me to focus more on achieving the highest award I can in my degree and becoming the professional designer I have always dreamed of being since I was a little boy. Your family’s generosity has inspired me. We are all human, but sometimes we don’t get the same opportunities as others. Thank you.''

Connor, Industrial Design and Technology, Ethel Bradley Reynolds Scholar
