Start Fundraising

Let's fundraise

You can fundraise for one of our flagship scholarships as well as our newly launched Mentally Fit York fund to help recognise the odds that students have overcome to get to York and to support on the ground mental health initiatives as well as the latest groundbreaking research taking place here at York.

Whether you’re planning your own event, or taking part in someone else’s, there are so many things that you can do to reach your target and make a difference to the lives of students at York, and you will be supported every step of the way.

Your fundraising is vital in ensuring that we can continue to support students who apply to our scholarships but don't receive them because there's simply not enough money to go around. Please take on a fundraising challenge and help students not just now, but for years to come.

York Opportunity Scholarships

The York Opportunity Scholarship was established to support students from underrepresented backgrounds as they access education. During the coronavirus pandemic, we have seen applications rise higher than ever before.

Thanks to generous support from people from across the York community, we are continuing to provide support for students from less advantaged households as they begin their journeys at York.
