Story

Our goal is to fundraise for student scholarships to give as many students as possible the opportunity to study at the University of Sheffield.

Scholarships are vital to reduce barriers for bright students from disadvantaged backgrounds, giving them the opportunity to have a university education.

The experience of going to university is much more than the higher education itself. University is about new insights, friendships, growing in independence and confidence, and leading the way to better-paid jobs and successful careers.

Unfortunately, the cost of university is increasing, which is reducing the number of students able to attend university from lower income and disadvantaged backgrounds. The rising costs are not just tuition fees, but all costs encompassing living such as rent and bills, textbooks, equipment, course field trips, sports, activities and travel costs.

Students who are from lower-income backgrounds often have to turn to loans to cover the cost of living, which can leave these students with debts of over £50,000 or more. Fear of these debts can put off both prospective undergraduates and bright graduates from pursuing further study through a Masters degree.

Our fantastic Community Fundraisers are coming together to participate in a wide variety of events for Student Scholarships. Please take a look below to see our list of events and fundraising pages for both teams and individuals.

Thank you so much for your support.
