Achieving Excellence Bursaries
We provide our students with the skills needed to flourish and make their mark in an increasingly competitive and challenging world. We work closely with the University’s Student Support Unit to identify those most in need to ensure that the best possible experience is available to all.
The key for York is to retain the inclusive ethos which is our hallmark and that means ensuring that support is there for students who may otherwise feel that they won’t be able to cope.
We hope that you share our belief in excellence and inclusivity. In response to a more difficult financial environment the University has already put in place a range of measures to ensure equality of opportunity for the best and the brightest regardless of circumstances, but with your help we can do more.
Help us give more people the chance to shine
Hear from the University's Chancellor, Greg Dyke (Politics, Derwent, 1974) about why he's leading our appeal.
"I am passionate that the brightest students with limited financial means should continue to benefit from what York has to offer.”
Scott, Sabrina, Danielle and Fabian have all flourished at York thanks to bursary support. Read more about their experience at York by clicking on their pictures above.
With your help we can offer support to more students like them. Please make your gift today. You can donate online through the link below or download a paper giving form.
