Support Durham University

When you make a gift to support Durham students, you’ll help to enable every student, no matter their circumstances, to realise their potential.

Supporting students from all backgrounds to study at Durham not only enables individual talents to shine. It also promotes diversity in our student body, bringing a wider spectrum of perspectives and ideas to everything we do.

Your donation could help to:

  • Provide a scholarship for a student from a low income or underrepresented backgrounds.
  • Fund emergency hardship bursaries to support students during difficult times, such as the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Support employability and personal development grants.

With your help, we can ensure that our community is made up of the brightest talents – whoever they may be.

Many alumni choose to support their college or department directly. Find out more about current fundraising priorities.
