Make a Donation to Support Durham Students


At Durham, we believe that our students can change the world. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring all students can fulfil their potential, regardless of their background. By providing scholarships, grants and bursaries we can remove financial barriers and allow all students to benefit from everything Durham offers. 

When you make a gift, you’ll help to support the brightest talents – no matter what challenges they face.  

Your donation could help to: 

  • Contribute towards a scholarship for a student who is just as able, but least likely to go to university. 
  • Enable a student to work fewer part-time hours and fully concentrate on their studies. 
  • Give a student the chance to pursue career development opportunities, such as work placements and volunteering. 

You can choose to make a gift to a cause you care about below. Or if you're happy for your gift to be used wherever it will make the most difference, you can give where the need is greatest. 


We are so grateful for the gifts that we receive from our alumni and supporters.
