GIve the gift of education.

RGU is committed to extending access to learning. Universities transform lives. Going to university leads to new ways of seeing the world, to new prospects and networks, and to significantly enhanced job opportunities. 

We are seeking financial support to create opportunities for students who otherwise may not have the means to attend RGU 

"I can honestly say without the support … I would not have been able to continue my studies. I will be forever grateful.  It will help me reach my dream of being a social worker." 

Dawn Findlay BSc (Hons) Social Work student at RGU and recipient of an Access Scholarship.

Material disadvantage should not be a barrier to a bright student benefiting from higher education.     

Access Scholarships at RGU support exceptional individuals from under-represented backgrounds, particularly those from deprived areas, to achieve their ambitions through higher education. 

Scholarships are offered in partnership with The Robertson Trust's "Journey to Success" scheme. Access scholarships provide funding to help with basic living costs, as well as providing work experience, mentoring and dedicated training to students.

Hear from Marie, a talented RGU student who has benefitted form an access scholarship.

    We are grateful to those who have already contributed, your support is valued and vital. 

Your support has been life changing, you have raised aspirations and created opportunity for bright students from diverse backgrounds, helping them to overcome the barriers to gaining a higher education. 

Your donations of any size will help bright students to reach their full potential.  All funds received will go directly to committed students who have been awarded a scholarship.

The more donations received the more opportunities we will be able to create.

Thank you for considering supporting individuals to achieve their potential through higher education.
