The Gold Scholarship Programme gives 50 students the chance to succeed at Bath, year after year.

Gold Scholars are often the first in their family to go to university, and may not have a network of people from whom they can seek advice. Alumni Mentors are volunteers who advise the students on university life and the world of work.

Become a Gold Mentor

In September, we’ll be welcoming our next cohort of up to 50 new Gold Scholars. We’re looking for more Alumni Mentors, from a range of backgrounds, to volunteer their time and skills to support these students.

If you studied at the University, you’re eligible to become an Alumni Mentor. We’re particularly looking for alumni who have also had some career experience outside of higher education.

Please contact Molly Southwood, Deputy Director & Head of Alumni Engagement, to express your interest in becoming an Alumni Mentor.
