We believe that access to higher education should be open to all, and all students should be able to flourish and achieve to their full potential, regardless of their financial background. At a time where potential students may be deterred from going to university due to financial constraints, we are proud to offer a unique opportunity through our Salford Advantage Bursary programme for those who might otherwise struggle to reach higher education and afford to study for a life-changing degree.

Your support enables us to offer a £1,000 annual bursary to promising undergraduates who need it the most, particularly care leavers and first-in-family students. Your support enabled us to provide this bursary to 23 talented individuals in 2015/16, lifting the stress of financial burden and allowing our students to fully focus on their studies.

The need for this financial support, however, continues to outweigh the support that we can provide. By giving to this fund, you will be ensuring that we can continue to reach out to gifted individuals that that may be deterred from going to university.

Thanks to this special support, we can help to remove financial barriers to higher education, open doors to opportunities and continue to champion a diverse and academically gifted student body.
