Magnusson Fund

Established in honour of our late Chancellor, Magnus Magnusson KBE, the Magnusson Fund provides GCU students with incredible opportunities to realise their dreams whilst making a positive impact on the lives of others around the world.

Each year, shortlisted students have the opportunity to pitch their idea in front of a panel chaired by Honorary President, Dr Sally Magnusson. No idea is out of bounds, with projects ranging from volunteering in developing countries to establishing a new social enterprise.  

The Fund has now supported more than 110 students with funded activity taking place in more than 35 countries. To learn more about recent life changing projects, and the students who have delivered them, view the 2019 Magnusson Awards Brochure. 

These special awards are made possible through the generous support of our donors. Contact the Foundation Team to discuss how you could help a young person to achieve their dream.
