Supporting Homerton

You are here

If you would like to make a gift in memory of Professor John Murrell, please choose the ‘Student Support’ fund online, note this on the back of your cheque, or email us at development@homerton.cam.ac.uk.   

As soon as you walk through the gates to study at Homerton College you become a lifelong member. As a College we warmly welcome involvement in the community, and this doesn't stop when you graduate. We want to continue supporting you through your career and in turn kindly ask our alumni to remember us fondly and give back where they can.

Homerton received the Royal Charter in 2010 and thus put in place the last building blocks of our new structure as a Cambridge College. Homerton’s greatest strength has always been its students and staff. We aspire to allow all our students to reach their full potential while at Cambridge and to have them taught by staff who by combining teaching and research are the best in their field.

Our priorities are:

Student support

Including:

  • academic support for current students, both undergraduate and graduate.  Examples include book grants, travel grants, research support, Year Abroad support, and the ‘academic skills’ programme.
  • hardship grants to help meet living expenses – i.e. to prevent any student dropping out of their course.

The student experience

Studenthood is a critical time for personal development: students use this time to explore and discover who they will become.

Your help is needed for:

  • Extra-curricular activity, including sports, music, and drama
  • Personal development and employability, for example vacation courses and the ‘life skills’ programme.

Graduate bursaries and scholarships

Most students graduate from their first degree with debt, and need robust funding for graduate study in order to stay in Higher Education.  Homerton students look to Homerton for help in funding graduate study.

Investing in teaching

Increasing the quality and quantity of teaching we provide to our students.

On average, it costs the University and Colleges of Cambridge around £18,000 per year to teach a UK/EU undergraduate student. Whatever the funding situation, we will continue to deliver needs-blind admission on academic merit alone, and so we welcome philanthropic funding to help us bridge the gap between the costs of education and the income we receive from student fees and government.

Developing the estate

Enhancing the College environment and facilities: maintenance of the gardens and buildings, and new construction.

All gifts, no matter their size, make a real difference.  Added together they create an important resource to ensure Homerton's continued success and excellence into the future.

If you would like to support Homerton through a donation, you can find more information on how you can give to Homerton. Alternatively, please contact us by email at development@homerton.cam.ac.uk, or by telephone on 01223 747270.
