Magnusson Award Winners

Over the past 10 years the Magnusson Awards have provided GCU students with the opportunity to fulfil their own potential whilst making a positive impact on the lives of others around the world. 

The Magnus Magnusson Fund was created by Glasgow Caledonian University, established in honour of our late Chancellor, television presenter, journalist, writer, historian, professional Icelander and “lad o’pairts”, Magnus Magnusson KBE. 

Each year, thanks to the generous support from our donors, GCU students have the opportunity to apply for a Magnusson Award of up to £5,000 to support their dreams and ambitions. Shortlisted students have the opportunity to pitch their idea in front of a panel of donors chaired by Honorary President, Dr Sally Magnusson, with projects ranging from volunteering in developing countries, delivering community projects or starting their own business. And, what makes our awards truly unique is that no idea is out of bounds.
