Gifts to the Alumni Fund can provide vital support when and where it is needed most.

You can fund scholarships

The Gold Scholarship Programme ensures that challenging circumstances are no barrier to a Bath education. The Advancement Office commits to pay for 50 Gold Scholarships each year. Gold Scholarships open the door to all that university has to offer for talented individuals from lower income households and who meet specific criteria such as being a care leaver. Many of our scholars are the first in their family to attend university and wouldn't have the chance to attend without the gifts received from our generous Alumni.

In 2024, for the first time, the Alumni Fund has committed to fund two enhanced Sports Scholarships and two Arts Scholarships.

You can support SU clubs and societies

The Alumni Fund provides an annual grant of £25,000 to SU Bath to help fund equipment and activities for clubs and societies. In recognition of the difficulties students face, the SU and Alumni Fund have joined up to create an access fund which allows students to gain financial support towards their involvement in SU groups. The fund helps support students with their experiences, wellbeing and personal development. This could include but is not limited to; attendance at an event in which the student is representing the University, a conference where they will gain knowledge and skills or an item of equipment that is a necessity for their involvement in an activity.  

You can provide a lifeline to students facing financial hardship

Thanks to donations to the Alumni Fund, students in financial difficulty can be awarded emergency grants providing urgent help for basic living costs including rent, food, energy and travel. The Alumni Fund has committed to support the Hardship Fund in the next academic year with a grant of £10,000.

You can provide the opportunity for a career-defining placement

Your gift can help pay for placement grants for students who would otherwise be unable to accept an unpaid or low paid placements, especially those in the charitable, education and NHS sectors.

You can help innovative research get off the ground

The Alumni Fund awards grants that can have a pivotal role in helping a project get started and secure the initial results it needs, enabling it to later secure more funding.
