Yasmin's Bursary Story
Your support is vital to secure the future of the next generation, who will go on to find solutions to the world’s biggest problems.
Undergraduate 2nd year student Yasmin Baker’s dreams of studying at Imperial have become a reality, thanks to the generosity of Imperial alumni and friends. A medical student who has taken a key role in the COVID-19 vaccination programme, Yasmin has been able to pursue her studies thanks to the Imperial Bursary.
For as long as she can remember, Yasmin Baker dreamed of studying Medicine at Imperial College London. Recognising her potential and enthusiastic interest in the medical field, Yasmin’s mother relentlessly supported her towards her goal,
“I have faced many challenges financially but despite being in difficult circumstances my mother encouraged me to dream big and never give up despite socioeconomic barriers.”
After being accepted to study Medicine, Yasmin received the Imperial Bursary which supports students in financial hardship and relieves them from financial pressure and worry so that they can thrive.
“The bursary has helped me cover my university costs, allowing me to fully immerse myself in university life and take advantage of all opportunities, without having to constantly think about finances.”
With our world leading education and research, we know studying at the College can be the greatest gift for students. No one knows the value of an Imperial education- and of Imperial research- better than the College community, and it is your support that helps to ensure financial barriers do not stand in our students’ way.
"Thank you so much for your generosity as you’ve helped turn my dreams into a reality! This kind action will always be remembered as I go through my academic journey! All the achievements I receive are yours too because without your donation, I wouldn’t be where I am today!"
