Thank you for your support towards scholarships at Sheffield
Over the last few months we have been carrying out a major drive to raise funds to support scholarships for students here at Sheffield, and you have been extremely generous in your support.
Throughout April and May we had a particular focus on raising funds towards postgraduate scholarships. These scholarships go towards living and study equipment costs, but also give our students an extra bit of freedom to allow them to take part in and experience activities to give them a more rounded university experience than they would normally manage. This could be joining a sports team or allowing them to go on study visits to expand their learning and broadening their skill base.
Thanks to your generosity we’ve been able to award a 50 postgraduate scholarships, more than every before, when combined with the University’s matched funding. We and all our scholarship recipients are extremely grateful for the help you so very kindly give.
Currently we are coming towards the end of our undergraduate fundraising drive. This year we received a record number of scholarship applications. With your help, we’ve already been able to award over 150 students with scholarships, and we are now fundraising to help students currently on our scholarship reserve list. We’re very close to reaching our target of helping 160 students starting at Sheffield this coming academic year, and every donation we receive will bring us closer to this goal. The deadline for this is 30 June, so that we can inform our new scholarship recipients before they start at Sheffield this September.
These scholarships go towards supporting the very best students who, through circumstances beyond their control, might not otherwise be able to study. Government grants for low income students were scrapped earlier this year, so these undergraduate scholarships (which are worth £1,200 per year for three years) are more vital than ever. With your support, we’re hoping to help more students than ever achieve their full potential here at Sheffield.
We are extremely grateful for every penny you give, as it allows us to support talented students to have the best education, and university experience possible.
