Philanthropy team appeals to alumni to support Opportunity Scholarships

The Philanthropy, Alumni and Supporter Engagement team in Marketing and Advancement is appealing to alumni this autumn to ask for donations to Opportunity Scholarships.

An Opportunity Scholarship awards a student with a financial gift of £3,000 a year for three years.

The scholarship supports students’ living costs. They may need to purchase course materials and computing equipment which is vital to their academic success – something many other students may take for granted.

A full scholarship is worth £9,000 over the course of three years.

Through the appeal, alumni are being asked to give donations from as little as £10 - because every donation makes a difference. The appeal encourages alumni to give what they can.

Just 300 donations of £10 will cover a scholarship for one year – so it takes just 900 to support one scholar!

You can find out further information, including four stories from current scholars, on the Giving website.
