Six ways your gift will help
You'll help those most in need
Your gift will help a student from a low-income background, who has earned their place at Sheffield despite growing up in tough circumstances. Many of our scholarship students are from areas of economic deprivation, they could have a disability or caring responsibilities.
You’ll help a student who is in financial need and has ambitious goals for their future.
You’ll help a student focus on their studies
More than 15 hours of paid work each week is too much for students. Any more has a detrimental effect on health, wellbeing and academic performance.
Your gift will enable a student to work fewer hours, freeing up their time to focus on their studies and achieve their potential.
You’ll reduce money worries
The lowest-income students graduate with debt of £55,000. And their loan is not enough to cover rising living costs.
Your gift will give a student reassurance and reduce their financial anxiety, which could make the difference between them choosing to go to university or not.
You’ll boost career prospects
Scholarships offer the freedom to be able to join a society, volunteer or go on a course field trip.
All of the activities on offer at Sheffield help students to develop the skills they need for the competitive graduate workplace.
You’ll inspire confidence
Knowing someone believes in them enough to donate improves confidence and gives students extra motivation to work hard.
You’ll show a student that you want them to achieve.
You’ll reduce social inequality
Undergraduate scholarships are a great way to encourage those who are most able, but least likely, to go to university. These students risk being put off because of the spiralling cost.
You’ll give a student the security they need.
