You can create a legacy for yourself, a loved one, a colleague, your company, or your organization by creating a named scholarship or bursary. A named gift requires a significant commitment and it provides significant rewards. By making a named gift you will be creating a long-lasting reminder of your commitment to the university for all to celebrate and be inspired by, now and in the future.
There are several types of student awards, each of which is helpful to our students in a different way:
- Scholarships require academic achievement and may include a financial need component. Renewable scholarships that cover more than one year of study are especially valuable to our students.
- Bursaries are awarded based on financial need to eligible students who have achieved successful academic performance.
- Prizes are based on specific academic achievement, such as achieving the top mark in a particular course or field of study.
Awards can be funded through annual donations by creating an endowment, the investment income from which provides the scholarship, bursary or prize in perpetuity. You may also choose a combination by making an annual contribution, a portion of which provides support for a current student, with the balance used to build an endowment over time. Some donors also contribute annually during their lifetimes and leave a bequest in their will to enable the award to continue after their death.
Please contact us and we will discuss options for setting up an award in your name.
