The Hallam fund
Universities have never been more important to more people than they are today. Around the world, individuals, governments and society increasingly look to universities to provide answers to the toughest questions and help people realise their aspirations.
The Hallam Fund provides additional and much needed support to our student and academic community so they can overcome barriers, access the best opportunities and take on some of society's greatest issues.
Alumni, staff and supporters of the University donate to the Hallam Fund's three fundamental causes
- Support for students from disadvantaged and under-represented backgrounds, particularly those leaving foster care, students who have carer responsibilities, and students who face estrangement because of their family or financial situations
- Opportunity bursaries which ensure all students can access career-enhancing and inspiring opportunities regardless of their background and financial situation
- Transformational research grants to ensure our researchers tackle some of the biggest challenges that we face across society today
Sheffield Hallam's mission is simple: we transform lives. We do this by shaping our students' futures and preparing them for whatever they choose to do, and by creating knowledge that provides solutions to real world challenges.
