What does my donation support?
Your donation funds these important projects.
Fellowship Endowment Fund
We have a community of 46 Tutorial Fellows. However, only 50% of their costs are covered by endowed funds. A further £15m will substantially secure the future of our world-class teaching and research capability, especially in relation to English, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Mathematics, Engineering Science and Modern Languages. Depending on the subject and types of post, gifts of between £2.3m and £1.15m will fully endow and name a Tutorial Fellowship in perpetuity.
Early Career Fellowships
Providing early career academics with the opportunity to develop their teaching and research skills is crucial for the intellectual future of our College, University and wider Higher Education sector. A fund of £3m will establish 6 Early Career Fellowships across the next decade, each costing £50k per annum.
Graduate Teaching Programme
Our library is increasingly required to marry the physical with the digital, integrating technological and other developments in ways that maximise the study and research experience for students and fellows. An endowment fund of £750k will provide financial headroom to evolve each year, whether that is enabling a Library Traineeship (£23k per annum) or a new RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Devices) book loan system (£30k).
