A Great Campaign
Girton is committed to providing an exceptional education, delivered by world-leading teachers and researchers, to all those who are academically talented enough to receive an offer. It should not matter who you are, where you come from, or how much you can afford. These principles of excellence, equality and diversity are the values on which the College was founded.
These are the values that we want to continue to safeguard for the future.
A Great Campaign is the largest fundraising campaign the College has undertaken since its visionary foundation over 150 years ago. It aims to help secure a financially sustainable future for Girton by growing the capital of the College’s unrestricted endowment, by increasing the amount of financial support to both undergraduate and graduate students, and by protecting the ground-breaking research and the inspirational teaching undertaken by our Fellowship.
Thank you for your support!
Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and supporters the endowment of eight Teaching and Research Fellowships has been completed, 17 undergraduate bursaries and two partial graduate scholarships have been funded in perpetuity and the College’s endowment has been increased from £22 million to £55 million. For this we are extremely grateful to everyone for their support.
However, there is more to do. By funding the endowment of more undergraduate bursaries, graduate scholarships and teaching and research Fellowships we can ensure that Girton’s educational experience remains open to everyone who is able, for ever.
Human, Social, and Political Sciences
The bursaries I have received from Girton have been really helpful in keeping me focused on my degree and not worrying as much about financial stress. They have assured me that I will be able to pay for my living costs for the whole academic year. As someone who worked on the Telethon Campaign I am really appreciative of these bursaries and how much alumni donors care about the College and the students who are here. Thank you so much for your contribution to Girton
