Please make a regular contribution or a one-off gift to support scholarships and bursaries at DMU.

Proud to be more

We at De Montfort University are proud to have been named as University of the Year for Social Inclusion by the Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2018. DMU was chosen for the award, in part, due to its diverse student population, a high proportion of which come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Every year we risk missing out on the enrolment of gifted students who may have amazing contributions to make to their chosen profession. The pharmacists, entrepreneurs, lawyers, professors, designers and leaders of our future should be representative of our society as a whole.

For students from low income households, it's easy to miss out on the best opportunities university has to offer due to insurmountable costs. Receiving a scholarship or bursary can change the course of a student's life forever. These students have the most to gain from university life. They also have the most to worry about financially. With your help, we can change that.

Our scholarship and bursaries programme provides these talented students with the chance to further their education by supporting them through their time at university. 

What your gift will support

Tuition fees, course materials, textbooks, DMUglobal trips, work experience opportunities, rent, food, utility bills, and other activities – the demands on student finances are constant. Your donation can help remove these financial barriers.

For example a donation of:

  • £10 a month will enable a scholarship student to participate in a club or society.
  • £20 a month will pay for a student to attend a DMUglobal trip that they'd otherwise miss out on.
  • £50 will help a scholarship student to buy a textbook.
  • £100 will help a student buy materials for their final degree show.
  • £500 will fund a full hardship bursary for a student in financial difficulty.
  • £1,000 may allow a scholarship student to focus on their studies rather than work a part time job
  • £3,000 a year for 3 years will fund a scholarship, match-funded by the University.
  • £9,000 a year for 3 years will fund a full fee named scholarship 

However you choose to support, you will be helping to keep higher education accessible for young people in need. Thank you.
