You can help a student say yes to their place at Nottingham 

A place at University can transform a young person’s world. But too many bright students from disadvantaged backgrounds find barriers are in their way.

We believe that talented students should not miss out on higher education because of where they come from or how much money they have. A scholarship could be the difference between lost potential and a future doctor, teacher or scientist.

Talent needs a catalyst. Donate today and you can help students from all backgrounds say yes to their University dream.

Make dreams a reality



"Receiving the scholarship meant so much – it made it possible for me to take up my place at Nottingham and really throw myself into my studies. But I think it was more than just the money – it was also really special to know that alumni like you have given me this help."

Muhammad, 3rd year Medical student


Your support changes lives

Zach was the first in his family to attend University. It was something he had dreamed of from a young age, but due to his financial background didn't think would be possible. With the support of a scholarship, Zach was able to realise his dream of studying Geography.

As a student from a low-income family, managing financees can often be a struggle. However with your generous donations I was able to purchase text books and set aside money for transport costs to  travel to my summer work experience placement with chartered surveyors, Colliers International, ” Zach said.

“Studying geography at a prestigious university had been my dream from a young age. I am so thankful that with the help and support of Nottingham alumni and friends of the University, this dream became a reality and I started my degree in 2015. Thank you for believing in me."

The skills I developed at Nottingham enabled me to begin my career with prospects that are overwhelming for someone my age.

Georgie's story
"My hopes of what university would be, the experiences I would have and the people I would meet, are now a reality thanks to the generosity of others. This support enables me to fully focus on my studies and gave me the confidence and motivation to engage with all aspects of university life."

Georgie, Law Student
