Prizes and grants: Our aim is to stimulate academic excellence, to support our students on their career path, and to ensure that they are able both to fulfil their potential and to share their knowledge by attending conferences and other key events.

How you can help to make a difference

Whether you make a large donation or small, regular gifts, every donation counts.

A monthly gift of just £20 from 100 Wolfson members, would raise £24,000 per year (£30,000 with Gift Aid in the UK): enough to fund several students who would otherwise face hardship, essential travel grants, or make a major contribution to a prize or studentship. Imagine what an even more generous donation could achieve.
