Ten new Gold Scholars per year are also supported by your Alumni Fund. Since the Programme was launched in 2017, your gifts have enabled 294 promising young minds to attain an outstanding education, regardless of background or circumstances.
“My experience at university really wouldn’t have been the same without my scholarship,” says Georgia. “With the increased costs of living and the pandemic, I haven’t needed to worry about money, allowing me to focus on my degree.”
But a Gold Scholarship offers more than just financial help. Gold Scholars are often the first in their family to proceed to higher education, and often don’t have anyone they can ask for advice on university life or career aspirations. That’s why they receive training in skills such as networking, as well as access to mentors and support with completing 50 hours of volunteering, fundraising or outreach work per year.
