    Weʼve raised £2,828 to support and contribute to the Kit de Waal Scholarship for disadvantaged and marginalised writers

    Funded on Wednesday, 4th January 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We believe that the development of talent and ambition should not be the privilege of those who can afford it. Educational and artistic opportunities should be open to all who want to participate. The first Kit de Waal Scholarship was launched in October 2016 at Birkbeck University, and provides fully funded places for students to study for the acclaimed Birkbeck Creative Writing MA. The Scholalrship also includes a generous travel bursary to allow students to travel into London, as well as Masterclasses for runners-up.

    The de Waal Scholarship is intended to talented writers who would not otherwise be able to afford to do the course, targeting students from disadvantaged backgrounds (including but not confined to care leavers, ex-prisoners, members of BAME communities, people with a disability and those from socio-economically deprived and marginalized groups).

      A huge thank you to all the generous people who've donated so far. We've exceeded our original goal, so we're widening the scope of this page to include donations to fund the tuition of the next scholar. Thanks for your support!

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
