How will you choose to impact lives here at Imperial?
At Imperial we are passionate about supporting our students however we can throughout their studies. Every student is different, and we provide financial assistance in a number of different ways to ensure that we meet their needs as best we can.
Donations from alumni are at the heart of what we do, as they enable us to be more flexible and proactive with the aid we give to our students. Gifts from the Imperial community help ensure that financial barriers do not stand in the way of a talented student and their dreams, and are often the difference between someone completing their studies or being forced to leave them behind. You can help us continue removing those barriers for as many of our students as possible, and give them the opportunity to succeed in their College life and beyond.
With your help, we can continue to provide essential aid to disadvantaged and deserving students through the Imperial Bursary, attract the best and brightest applicants with the President’s Scholarship, and meet the needs of those facing sudden financial hardship which casts their future at Imperial into doubt.
Every gift to support students will be matched pound-for-pound, doubling the impact of your generosity.
“As you may know, before COVID-19, many Imperial students would take on part-time work during their studies. Students who study here tend to be very independent and resourceful – when their financial pressures increase, we see time and time again that they try to manage this by working more and more hours, often on top of already gruelling coursework and long nights studying.
They soon abandon their extra-curricular activities to make time for work and, even then, it often isn’t enough. It’s heartbreaking when this happens, and I always wish students would come to us sooner – before they reach crisis point. I want to let them know that their University is here for them – that we can help them. But the truth is, our resources are finite. Students need your support now, more than ever before, if they are to go on to pursue their Imperial dream. ”
