Giving to Science

Since the University's foundation in 1854, our scientists have been using their knowledge and discoveries to make important contributions to the world. Your gifts enable us to continue this tradition of teaching and research excellence.

Through scholarships for students who have experienced financial or social disadvantage, financial grants that enable students to take their learning globally, prizes rewarding academic merit and achievement, or support for our cutting-edge research and innovation; your belief in the transformative power of education creates educational opportunities that ensure our students and researchers can fulfil their potential and go on to contribute to the most pressing issues of the day.

All gifts, no matter how big or small, have a real impact and support our vision of being a world-leading science faculty.
