Support our scholarships and community projects

Finances should not be a barrier to education. You can help students of all ages and backgrounds by donating towards an Alumni-funded scholarship.

"Thinking the only option to be financially secure was to leave University and get a full-time job, I spoke with the funding team. They were so helpful and suggested I applied for the scholarship. Hearing I had received the scholarship was monumental! The difference the money made to myself, and my family was unmeasurable."

To find out more about how you can support the scholarship fund and how current students are benefiting from your support, follow the link below.

Other ways to get involved


If you would like to volunteer on campus, give a guest lecture or contribute in another way, get in touch with us.

If you can offer internships, work experience or graduate employment to our students, we would love to hear from you. Talking to students about your career path is another valuable way to pass on your experience. Your insight can help students to choose courses, placements and volunteering opportunities and find their first graduate jobs.

Donate money at no cost to you

Would you like to donate money to our scholarship scheme, for free and at no expense to you?

We’ve partnered with Easy Fundraising, a platform that allows you to donate money to our scholarships fund at no cost to you.

All you have to do is create an account, choose us as your charity of choice, select a retailer, and complete your online shopping as normal. Once you’ve completed your shop at one of thousands of outlets, we’ll receive a small percentage of your total from the retailer. Your shopping won’t cost any more, and we never receive information about what you bought, or your card details.

Sign up for Easy Fundraising and support our students on the YSJ Alumni Fundraising page.

Learn more about our scholarships on our Alumni-funding scholarships page.
