University of Sheffield in America

We set up the University of Sheffield in America, a U.S. registered charity, to help former students in the USA to stay connected with Sheffield, get connected with each other, and support their University.

The University of Sheffield in America alumni reunion 2017

There are currently around 4,000 Sheffield alumni living in the United States. Many are expatriate British graduates, who went on to build their careers and lives in the States. Others are American citizens who came to study in Sheffield, either for their full degree or through our Study Abroad programme.

The University of Sheffield in America is led by our volunteer Board of Directors who organise events, oversee how funds donated to the University of Sheffield in America are used at the University, and are active ambassadors for Sheffield in the United States.

Events

Each May we host our American Alumni Reunion. In 2020 we will be coming to Chicago - more details and invitations will be provided in the new year.

For other events in the USA take a look at the Upcoming Events Calendar.

Giving

You can make a tax deductible donation in US dollars through the University of Sheffield in America. Since we began, US alumni and friends have given over $6 million for scholarships, student facilities and research.
