Newcastle Student Fund

Newcastle Student Fund

Empowering students to reach their full potential.

Students are at the heart of everything we do.

From the start of the pandemic, our donor community has stepped up to help Newcastle. You have helped support vital research, bought laptops for students, helped pay rent for care leavers and provided hardship grants for those who most needed urgent financial assistance.  

We want the legacy from the pandemic to be one of kindness, hope and belief in the power of education. This is why we have created the Newcastle Student Fund – a bold new initiative to empower talented and deserving students to realise their ambitions, not just this year, but for many years to come.  

Your donations are needed more than ever, and we hope that you will join us in supporting Newcastle students.  

Thank you.  

This new initiative will empower thousands of students over many years to reach their full potential with Newcastle University, and I and my family are proud to be personally supporting the fund.

Professor Chris Day, Vice-Chancellor and President of Newcastle University

Your donation will help our students:

My family and I have had a very difficult time this year, dealing with a bereavement and the ongoing Covid-19 situation. The security offered by my scholarship and the ability to pursue something I am passionate about has been a huge support.

Richard, Newcastle University Scholarship Recipient

Christina's story

Christina is a medical student, with aspirations of becoming a GP when she graduates. Christina was inspired to become a GP after attending a conference, which was only possible with the financial support of the University. Our support has also empowered Christina to start her own YouTube channel and blog about studying medicine.

Durga's story

Durga is a Master's student, studying Mechanical Engineering. She is also a recipient of the Vice Chancellor's Excellence Scholarship, supported by our alumni community. This financial support has relieved the stress that university costs can put on families, and empowered Durga to focus on her studies and contribute to the scientific community. 

Donations to the Newcastle Student Fund help fund a great variety of student support mechanisms here at Newcastle University. Your donations give opportunity to those in need and empower student recipients to be the best that they can be. By donating today even more deserving Newcastle University students will be able to benefit.
