If you studied at Lancaster, you had the opportunity of a fantastic experience at a university ranked among the top 1% of the world’s academic institutions. No doubt all sorts of opportunities have opened up to you as a direct result of your university education.

But it’s not the same for everyone. That’s why we’re determined to make this outstanding opportunity accessible to a wider range of talented people who would otherwise find it impossible either to come to Lancaster University or to continue studying with us.

You understand the value of your university education and what it has done for you, both personally and professionally. Will you support other students who would desperately like to have the same opportunities? 


Creating opportunities for all our students

The cost of being a student today continues to rise. Higher costs can be crippling, which is why scholarships and bursaries are needed and appreciated more than ever. Your donation could:

  • help us to encourage more high-school students from less privileged backgrounds to go to university
  • fund an overseas field-trip or the purchase of essential equipment
  • enable students to remain at Lancaster when sudden financial hardship strikes and they might otherwise have to abandon their studies
  • fund young researchers and postgraduates
  • pay for Students’ Union events and societies
  • offer life-changing educational opportunities for students from developing countries
