Alumni Fund helps to celebrate student excellence in volunteering

Each year, one of Edge Hill’s Excellence Scholarships is funded by generous donations from our alumni. Excellence Scholarships aim to reward students who have made a contribution to University life, either by excelling academically, raising the profile of Edge Hill in a positive way, promoting equality, motivating others, or by overcoming personal circumstances to achieve.

This year Volunteering Entrance Scholars were supported by the Alumni Fund. Click here to watch interviews with this year’s appreciative recipients of the Alumni Scholarship and hear the difference it has made to their studies and the invaluable volunteering that they undertake in the community.  

Volunteering Entrance and On-Course Scholarships support students who have balanced their studies, often with work and family commitments, to give back and make a difference in their local community or further afield.

As an alumnus you have not only contributed to the current success of the University, but you also have the opportunity to play a major part in its future. Offering a donation to the Alumni Fund, no matter how big or small, can make a difference to a student’s life. You can make a donation through our online store at edgehill.ac.uk/alumni/donate.

The Alumni Fund also supports the University Hardship Fund, which provides financial support to those students most in need. This money can make the difference between a student continuing their education or being forced to drop out due to their circumstances. It can also give disadvantaged students the initial boost they need to start their academic career.
