Glasgow Caledonian University Foundation
Education has the power to change lives - that’s why at GCU we work with all our students to help them reach their full potential. Through generous donations to the GCU Foundation we provide a variety of opportunities and experiences that help to level the playing field for students joining us from more challenging background.
Last year alone, donations to the Foundation enabled over 200 widening access scholarships and awards, as well as thousands more students benefitting from grants to our clubs and societies and award winning outreach programmes. We disbursed nearly 20 seed funding grants to help students and recent graduates start up new businesses, students benefitted from funded internships and thousands more benefited from access to cutting edge equipment.
These awards can be truly life changing and help to shape the future of students who benefit from them. Here are a few examples of how students benefitted from philanthropic awards in 2018.
The Glasgow Caledonian University Foundation has raised over £8 million to date thanks to the generosity of donors, alumni and friends of GCU. Watch our video to find out more about how gifts are making a difference to our students at GCU.
