Support Brunel students

Scholarships

We strive to secure as many scholarships as possible to ensure bright and determined students are not prevented from getting a university education because of financial barriers. Supporting a Brunel student, either at an undergraduate or postgraduate level, can have a life changing impact. Your sponsorship, whether through donations or opportunities provided, ensures that students across the University have access to our world class educational opportunities.

Many students have part-time jobs to help fund their courses. But for some, they need to work so much that it can have an adverse effect on their studies, sometimes even resulting in them not being able to complete their degree. Scholarships help alleviate these financial pressures.

“My scholarship has enabled me to buy study equipment (such as work boots) and enabled me to spend more time on my studies. I owe a giant thank you for the donations that have made my experience so wonderful”.

Civil Engineering student, Kirsty Greener

Some scholarships are created through donations from individuals to our Scholarship Fund, others come from organisations. For example, Tata Global Beverages provides eight scholarships for students from our Urban Scholars Programme. They specifically support this area as it helps raise the aspirations of young people that have faced significant and challenging circumstances in their lives. Whatever you are able to contribute, your donation will help Brunel students fulfil their potential.

Prizes and Awards

Through donated prizes we recognise and reward exceptional personal and academic performance. Many prizes support individuals who demonstrate great achievements despite challenging circumstances, while others reward excellence in research and attainment. For example, each year we award a £100 prize to the student demonstrating the most outstanding research into Ovarian Cancer. Could you help us celebrate a culture of exceptional achievement by providing a prize? If so, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Placements, Careers Opportunities and Mentoring

Placements, Career Opportunities and Mentoring

Can you offer a work-placement experience or advice to help a Brunel student?

Brunel University London is renowned for pioneering student placements and sandwich programmes. We recognise that career opportunities and learning for students can be greatly enhanced through placements and internships. Hands-on, real life experience cannot be acquired in the lecture theatre; and as such these invaluable opportunities enhances both the student and the business, providing an ideal route to source future employees.

Mentoring students is one of the most powerful ways of becoming involved with the life of the university and can be tremendously rewarding both to the mentors and the mentees. If you are interested in getting involved, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Case Studies

Christopher Alfred Moses - Brunel Alumni Scholarship

Anton Stevens - Urban Scholarship

“The Urban Scholarship has helped me a great deal. It has been a great motivation to work hard, which is one of the many reasons I am approaching my graduation! My experience with the Urban Scholars programme has been invaluable as I have learnt a great deal, met wonderful people and now have the chance to give back to younger students”.

Rosie Cumber - Music Award Holder

“As a singer, the Music Award has without doubt enhanced my university experience. From lead roles in musicals, to performing in a trio called the BRUnettes, it has built my confidence to perform songs which I never dreamed I would have the guts or ability to sing! Without the award my time at Brunel would not have been the same."
