Support Our Scholarships

Will you help students?

You can transform someone's life by giving to scholarships. Our students are the future of industry, but with student debt at an all-time high, many young people feel that higher education is out of their grasp.

Financial support in the shape of a scholarship will transform someone’s life. It will allow a student to feel truly valued, and will let them focus on their studies instead of worrying about how they’re going to pay the rent.

Scholarships can be established in your name or in honour or memory of someone special. With your generous support we can help our most deserving students.

Every gift, no matter how big or small, makes a difference.

Together, we can help our students work their way to a better future

Thanks to the continued generosity of our donors and supporters, we are able to offer students at UWL a fantastic range of philanthropic scholarships, bursaries and prizes worth up to £5,000 a year each.

This academic year we received more than 1100 applications for the 69 donor-backed awards available. This means we could help 5%, or 1 in 20 of those who applied.

We want to increase the number of scholarships available so that we can continue to widen participation and access to an education at UWL, recruit exceptional students and provide crucial support for those in need.

By donating to scholarships you will provide talented students with the financial support that they urgently need. Your gift will open the door of opportunity for them. It will allow them to pursue higher learning at UWL that otherwise may have been out of reach.

Did you know that 50% of full-time undergraduates at UWL come from households with an income of less than £25,000 a year? Scholarships have an amazing impact on the lives of low-income students. They:

  • Remove a major source of stress
  • Enable better academic results
  • Boost confidence and self-esteem

Your generosity and kindness will provide talented students with the financial support that they need, giving them the chance to enjoy their studies as well as learning to the best of their ability.

Every gift can have a life-changing impact
