University of Buckingham Bursary Fund

Will you support The University of Buckingham Bursary Fund, and help make sure deserving students are able to take up their hard-earned places at Buckingham?

The University of Buckingham Bursary Fund is the University’s fundraising priority each and every academic year. No young person with the talent and aspiration to study with us should be deterred by financial worries. Yet with the cost of attending university continuing to rise. There is an urgent need for more assistance.

With philanthropic support for Buckingham’s bursary scheme – designed to offer the right level of assistance to the students most in need – we can ensure that no future leader is held back from a Buckingham education.

We invite our generous alumni and friends to make a gift to support students in need and to help build momentum behind this important initiative.

Why is alleviating financial stress important?

For students from lower-income households, where parents are unlikely to be able to make much of a financial contribution, the high costs of higher Education and living costs can be a struggle.

The offer of additional financial support, made at the right moment and at the right level, makes a real difference to students from low-income households who are considering a place at Buckingham.

Buckingham Gap Bursary: A campaigns funded scheme to fully close the gap between the fees charged by Buckingham and the amount currently available from the Students loans Company (£6,000 per year).

Transformational Bursary: £25,000 per year in support for fees and living expenses for UK and overseas students who are identified as particularly strong academically and make a strong case (or a case is made via a sponsor) for a Buckingham degree making a difference to their lives and those of their community.

How will the fund be awarded?

The bursary fund is for those students who have met the entry requirements to receive a place at Buckingham, but lack the financial resources to study with us.
