From funding talented individuals from less privileged backgrounds to helping us remain at the coal face of law research, your support will help create a vibrant community of scholarship and an exceptional environment in which to learn.
Create scholarship opportunities
Our alumni are consistent and generous in their support of those from less privileged backgrounds. Creating scholarships helps them get them into university - whilst bursaries take away some of the financial burden of university study once here.
Help those experiencing hardship
Contributions to the Law School's Hardship Fund makes it possible for the Hardship Grant Committee, supported by many of our alumni, to give small grants to law students who are experiencing exceptional financial hardship that may significantly impair their study. Your support can help them complete their course.
Provide great facilities
Exceptional facilities means an exceptional learning experience. In 2013, our alumni donated almost £1 million to give the Wills Memorial Library a new lease of life, the impressive architecture matched by truly excellent facilities inside. As part of a Law School expansion project we are now looking for funding for an exciting revamp of 8-10 Berkeley Square.
Fund world-leading research
Funding for PhDs is incredibly competitive, but thanks to donations from alumni, students are turning their passion for law into life-changing research at Bristol. The Faculty of Social Science and Law is currently looking for support to introduce more PhD scholarships for those showing exceptional research potential.
Relieve hardship. Celebrate talent.
