Our Scholarships are for £250, around the average cost of a student’s first year Reading List. We hope you feel able and inspired to fund a student yourself. Your gesture will help a student and will make a difference (87% of last year’s Scholarship winners said the award made ‘a big difference’ to their first year of study). If you nominate a school or college – your old school perhaps, or one in your community – we will contact them and ask if they would be willing to award the Scholarship to a high-achieving student (most, but not all, schools are happy to). Just let us know which school or college you’d like it directed to. We will let you know (in October) where the student is going on to study, and what subject, so you get a strong sense of who your Scholarship will help. Your generosity will help someone follow in your footsteps.
“He has shown amazing grit, determination and resilience in overcoming a huge amount of early trauma to excel in his studies. He has shone at school, working hard for himself whilst helping others. He has over-achieved in everything, and he is a true example that it's not where you come from that matters, it's where you're going!”
