Other ways to give
The Faculty is currently seeking support for the following initiatives:
Nurturing the scientific leaders of tomorrow
We know that a career in science is a vehicle to transform peoples’ lives. By teaming up students with academic mentors, we are inspiring young people from all backgrounds to take up a career in science. Your support helps us to offer more paid research placements and internships, creating new opportunities for all students to gain experience working alongside leading researchers.
Enhancing educational engagement
Deep educational engagement can bring teaching to life, improve learning and build communities to enrich students’ experience. With your support, the Faculty can pioneer new approaches to teaching, complement traditional classroom instruction with digital media and harness social media to open up discussion and debate between students and staff.
Extending global connections
Periods of study overseas are hugely beneficial for undergraduates and early career researchers, exposing them to new scientific approaches and plugging them into an increasingly global science culture. Your support will allow us to offer more fully-funded exchange opportunities for our brightest young people.
Support a department
Today, we have an exciting vision for the future of chemistry at Imperial, housed in the new state-of-the-art facilities we are developing at the White City Campus. The new building, the Molecular Sciences Research Hub, will allow researchers to collaborate more easily, both inside and outside College.
The Department works at the cutting edge of research to understand the basis of life from molecules to ecosystems. We attract some of the brightest students from around the globe who aim to exploit this knowledge for the benefit of society and mankind.
As science becomes more quantitative, the value of mathematics is recognised more than ever. Our exciting and dynamic teaching and research environment attracts the brightest students from around the world. To continue to pursue research and education at the highest levels we need to fund studentships, and post-docs in cutting-edge areas of research.
In the coming decades, we’re looking to strengthen our multidisciplinary research across a range of topics from solid state physics to experimental particle physics. As part of our plan to pursue research at the highest levels, we aim to fund more studentships and post-docs in cutting-edge areas of research.
Centre for Environmental Policy
Our Department produces and collaborates with national and international leaders in sustainability, climate change and low carbon energy innovation. We work on the cutting edge of the world's most pressing challenges some of which even threaten our way of life. Our shared inspiration is to work with our supporters to maintain and enhance life on our planet.
Support a scholarship
Schrödinger Scholarship Scheme
By supporting the Schrödinger Scholarship Scheme you help create new opportunities for PhD study in the Faculty of Natural Sciences. Applications for doctoral scholarships currently outstrip the available funding; your support helps to advance individual careers, and enhances our ability to attract the brightest and best research students.
Entirely funded through donations, the President's Scholarship Fund offers scholarships for bright young people - recognising their talent and enabling them to fulfill their potential at Imperial.
Your support can create a life-changing scholarship that provides full tuition fees and living costs for a talented and committed student. The scholarships are named after the donor, in recognition of their generosity.
Give in your will
Remembering Imperial in your will is a tax-efficient and insightful way of supporting the College. Securing support for the long-term is vitally important to the College, ensuring the continuation of world class research opportunities, providing education for gifted and disadvantaged young people and also ensuring the provision of resources worthy of a first class academic institution.
Your estate may be subject to inheritance tax and it may be advantageous to distribute your estate so that your family and friends are left gifts below the tax threshold and therefore not subject to inheritance tax.
It is increasingly difficult to mitigate the impact of inheritance tax in a cost-effective manner. Money from an estate that is bequeathed to an organisation with charitable status* is exempt from inheritance tax. You may wish to consider leaving some of your estate in this way for causes of your own choosing so as to benefit them in a way that you have personally specified.
Recommended wording for including a gift in your Will
Your solicitor may use the following wording as a guideline for including Imperial in your Will:
“I give, to the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine of Exhibition Road, South Kensington, London SW7 2AZ, [insert a fixed amount] or [insert specified percentage/all of my residuary estate] to be applied to the [insert general purposes/preferred area] of the said College and I declare that the receipt of the Director of Finance or other duly authorised officer of the College shall be good and sufficient discharge to my Executors.”
