The Cardiff Fund - helping to support the next generation of talented students



Scholarships and Bursaries

Scholarships enable those with motivation, to follow their dreams and reach their potential as future leaders in their fields of interest. The University aims to create a comprehensive programme to enable exceptionally bright young people to pursue academic excellence regardless of their background, family or financial constraints.

Through this fund we can also support students who have faced life events that have significantly impacted on their studies, to ensure they are able to continue on their chosen path.

By making a donation to this Fund, you will help give students access to a first-class education which they may not otherwise be able to afford. Your gift will support students' academic and personal development, and give them the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge that will serve them throughout their lives.

If you feel passionately about the creation of opportunities and would like to discuss how you can get involved with the Scholarship Fund, please contact us.


Student Development

Hayley Blackwell, BSc Zoology, completed a placement on the Udzungwa Forest Project in Tanzania with help from the Cardiff Fund. 

The trip provided me with experience of practical, on-the-ground conservation work in a way in which my degree program alone could not, by enabling me to focus on the social side of conservation as well as the ecological aspects with which I was familiar. This will no doubt be invaluable in helping me embark upon a career in conservation. I would like to sincerely thank the donors for making this incredible experience possible”. 

A donation to the Cardiff Fund will provide small grants for students to enable them to take advantage of work placements or volunteering opportunities that build their knowledge, give them practical experience in their chosen field, expand horizons and help their personal development.

By donating to this fund you could enable a student to take advantage of a global opportunity that will provide them with an exceptional and distinctive experience and prepare them for life beyond their studies.



Student Opportunities 

The Cardiff experience is also about participation in a wide range of activities, enabling students to get the most out of their time at the University. There are a broad range of clubs and societies available for students to participate in enabling students to get the most out of their time at the University. From music to sport, drama to community and welfare activities.

If there is a particular club or society that you would like to support, please do contact us at or call 029 2087 6413.
