The Wardlaw Scholarships scheme helps recipients to cope with the ever-rising cost of accommodation within St Andrews. This award enables students to have the financial security to concentrate on achieving a world-class education and to participate in experiences that are truly special to St Andrews. In recent years, the generosity of alumni has resulted in more incoming undergraduatesbeing able to benefit from these bursaries than ever before. Sponsor this wonderful cause today and help to transform the lives of well-deserving students.
Our current Sports Centre was built in 1968, when the number of the University’s students was a quarter of its current size. Fast forward to today and we are consistently ranked as one of the highest student athlete populations of any university in Scotland, and our students regularly compete at national and international level. This £11m project will fund the essential refurbishment of our out-dated facilities and will also provide support for our teams that would otherwise struggle to encourage participation.
Plans for the redeveloped Sports Centre include a new eight-court Sports Arena, a four-court indoor tennis facility, extended fitness suites, better equipment, increased spaces and an indoor swimming pool. We need continued support to finish on schedule so our athletes can get into peak condition!
Donors also have the opportunity to leave their mark on this redevelopment by personalising a bleacher seat within our new court! Donors can also customise a seat inscription from £350 as a reminder to generations of players and audiences of their loyalty and support for the University.
Family Book Fund
The Family Book Fund is a crucial initiative that enables the University Library to expand and enhance its academic collection for our current students and faculties to access the highest calibre resources possible for their research. Donations go towards securing online literary manuscripts, collections of e-books and an extensive database of journals, surveys, photographs and reports published throughout the UK and overseas.
Contributions make a tangible impact: a £50 gift goes towards the purchase of an undergraduate textbook for students to share within a module; £70 grants us an electronic source that hundreds of students can access and review simultaneously and $250 secures a highly-coveted, or perhaps rare, multi-volume journal or text, which can add tremendous depth to our students’ arguments in their dissertations.
Student Activities Fund
There are currently 145 different societies within the University of St Andrews Students’ Association, covering every interest from theatre to sport to Harry Potter. This diverse collection of clubs and initiatives is one of the ingredients that makes the St Andrews experience so unique.
The Student Activities Fund is proud to support new clubs and initiatives or maintain existing ones, but this is only possible through generous contributions from alumni, parents and friends.
With your help, we can give as many students as possible the chance to benefit from the experiences these societies provide and, in turn, enable them to give back to the St Andrews Community.
The Appeal Fund is a reserve that the University can use at short notice to support a particularly urgent project or an area of specific-need. This fund is perfect for donors who would prefer the University to allocate their donation where it is most needed. In recent years the Appeal Fund has been used to support initiatives such as the St Salvator’s Quadrangle improvement project and the expansion of our Library’s Special Collections. It has also been used to increase the number of postgraduate scholarships available.
Join our pledge, give today and help us to build a bright future for generations of students to come.
