Our partnership with Santander Universities
Santander Universities is a division of Santander committed to supporting its communities. Since 2007 Santander Universities has been supporting universities across the UK, providing increased access to study through scholarships, mobility awards, research grants and university customer support.
In September 2017 The University of Sheffield signed a new three-year agreement with Santander Universities which will see the company donate £225,000 to support a range of areas across the University.
The University has had a relationship with Santander since 2010, which has seen the bank donate in excess of £500,000 to the University, as well as having a branch within the Sheffield Students’ Union dedicated to supporting Sheffield students in financial matters.
This latest agreement will see the University receive £75,000 a year for the next three years, which will be used to provide international scholarships, and widen participation with scholarships for students from underrepresented areas. Awards will also encourage entrepreneurship at the University through Entrepreneurship Summer School Bursaries, as well as supporting our award winning ‘Give It A Go’ scheme to provide courses in employability, language and cultural awareness.
The agreement was signed by University of Sheffield President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Keith Burnett and Matt Hutnell, the Director of Santander Universities UK.
