Help us support our most vulnerable students

Students are under ever-increasing financial pressure due to the continuing cost-of-living crisis. Many are struggling to afford necessities such as food, daily travel expenses, and accommodation. This became clear through the recent Student Opportunity Fund application process where we saw a staggering increase of 59% in applications to the Academic Opportunity Scholarship. We are seeing the same increased demand across all our scholarship programmes.

To ensure those with potential can come to Ulster and have the means to see out their education, over the next 5 years, we aim to double our efforts to support 1,000 students.

Can you help us support our most vulnerable students? Help us encourage those most at risk to take the step into university by offering confidence and security. Join us to support our most talented and committed students to reach their full potential.

Can you help us to support more students like Kal?

“Having entered the care system as a teenager, I was determined that education would transform my life, despite little encouragement to study.

The scholarship I received was invaluable, allowing me to, against all the odds, reduce my working hours so I could focus on my studies and achieve my potential.It simply would not have been possible without the scholarship.”
