The Difference You Make
Thanks to our alumni's generosity, we can award scholarships that make a real difference to students' lives.
Thank you to all of our generous alumni and friends who have donated to Aston, helping to make possible new research projects, to improve facilities for students and to give those from less privileged backgrounds the opportunity to study and gain life-changing experiences.
Donations can help our students thrive in their academic lives, here is just a small sample of how your contribution makes an impact.
"It’s overwhelming that I’m the first person in my family to go to university, and it’s definitely a life changing moment going to Aston."
"The Wesleyan Foundation scholarship is very meaningful as it provides me with the motivation to keep going. "
"My parents didn’t go to university, so when I was accepted to study medicine they were overjoyed – they’re my biggest supporters! "
Gifts to Aston have made so many projects possible. Thank you for supporting Aston’s research and students.
“Food quality and safety are among the biggest challenges that can have a direct impact on health and welfare of people. The grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation towards the purchase of specialist equipment will enable us to expand our research into this key area of high strategic interest and social importance.” Professor Sergei Turitsyn
Aston students have a long history of entrepreneurial spirit and making things happen. This has found a natural home on the Aston crowdfunding platform, GO!
Using GO! allows students to create and manage their own philanthropic appeals, raising vital funds to enhance their own student experience. From clubs and societies needing extra resources, to individual students with bright ideas, using crowdfunding is a great way to turn possibilities into realities.
