The Hallam Fund
The University’s Hallam Fund was established in 2016 and provides funds donated by alumni, staff and friends of the University providing additional flexible support to innovative projects which benefit the wider student and research community.
Every penny of each donation goes into the Hallam Fund. As of January 2020, over £188,000 has been disbursed to projects that provide innovative support for the most disadvantaged student groups, enable students to take up life transforming opportunities they would not normally have access to and funding for early stage. We also have funded innovative start up projects in areas of academic research that are having real world impact on society.
Your Hallam Fund donation has the power to support one, or all, of our three priority causes:
- Support for students from disadvantaged and under-represented backgrounds, particularly those leaving foster care, those with 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 help our researchers tackle some of society's toughest challenges
Donations to the Hallam Fund have helped to make the transition to university easier for estranged students
Students at Hallam will be able to develop their critical thinking skills and broaden their professional networks through The Hallam Fund Career Mentoring Bursary.
