Description

University Scholarship Fund

In 2011 we set up a Scholarship Fund to ensure future students benefit from the Huddersfield experience.  The response from our staff, students, former students, and friends of the University has been overwhelming and for this reason we will be keeping the fund open.


Every £10 you donate through Gift Aid will become £12.50,  we can then use this money to match against the Government’s National Scholarship Programme turning it into £25.00 to support a new student, so please do take this opportunity to help our future students. 

Thank you in advance for helping support our future students.

Professor Bob Cryan, Vice-Chancellor

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a government programme that allows charities to claim back tax on donations. 

With Gift Aid, we receive an additional 25 pence from the HM Revenue & Customs for every pound received through a donation. 

For example, through Gift Aid, your donation of £10 automatically becomes £12.50. 

To have your donation go further, tick the checkbox on the form to use Gift Aid. 

To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains tax must at least equal the amount we will claim in the tax year. 

For more information about Gift Aid, visit the HM Revenue & Customs website.

National recognition for our fundraising

University staff and students, and our friends in the community were honoured at an awards ceremony in London last week. 

Last summer’s fundraising scheme for the student scholarship fund attracted the attention of experts in the fundraising world and we were nominated for an award which was collected, on behalf of all those contributing to the scheme, by the Vice-Chancellor and Professor Graham Leslie.

As you’ll remember our fundraising efforts raised more than £1 million in little over a month, in order to build up funds to award 1000 scholarships to help talented students from low income families achieve their potential.

We were specially commended for our achievements, so congratulations, and many thanks to everyone who took part in the fundraising scheme.
