The Alumni Fund Panel of alumni and staff met in October to distribute over £30,000 worth of grants to projects which support research, student experience and learning enhancement across campus.

Successful applications to the Alumni Fund included a project to pilot a gardening scheme to support students’ mental health and well-being; support for a robot designed for early breast cancer diagnosis and support for both the Bath University Rocket team and Bath Zero Emissions.

Where does the money come from?

Thousands of alumni and friends donate to the Alumni Fund every year.

Twice a year, our student fundraisers speak with alumni about studying at Bath, then and now, and gain valuable advice from alumni on entering the world of work after they graduate.

The donations made to the Alumni Fund through our student calling campaigns provide grants which support innovative research and teaching projects, student inclusion and life on campus.
