Support University of Gibraltar

The University of Gibraltar works with individuals and organisations to widen access to higher education, encourage sustained student success and contribute to our vision of building a first-class institution.
Financial support from individuals, companies, trusts and foundations make an immediate impact on our students and the communities we serve. Through your donation, you join a community of philanthropists who contribute to shaping the future of Higher Education here in Gibraltar.

“Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we can deliver academic excellence and break down some of the barriers to higher education for those who need it.”

Professor Catherine Bachleda
Vice Chancellor (Ag), University of Gibraltar

Our Funding Priorities

Widening access to education

Higher education can make a real difference to people and the communities they live in. It is this belief, together with our commitment to academic excellence that underpins everything we do.

While there are many individual and societal benefits of a university education, there are still segments of society to whom going to University is simply not an option.

Scholarships have the power to break down some of the barriers to education while bursaries can encourage sustained student success through their studies. They are both meaningful ways of making a direct impact on people’s lives.

Bursary

From £1,000
A bursary is a set amount that is designed to support a student who is already studying at the University. It can be made available to one student or, for larger donations, the bursary can contribute towards tickets for a student to attend a conference or vital equipment like a laptop help support more than one person. You can set the selection criteria for the award.

Scholarships

From £10,000-50,000
A scholarship is designed to help a student access education. It could cover partial or full tuition fees for example and is applied for before they commence a course at the University. Whatever you decide to donate, you set the selection criteria or target group.

Enhancing the student experience & improving our facilities

As we grow, so do the needs of our students. Whether its cutting-edge laboratory equipment, enhanced social spaces, developing our curriculum, student support or state-of-the-art IT suites, maintaining and developing the highest quality student facilities and resources takes investment.

We understand that delivering an excellent student experience goes beyond the fabric of a building. Making a donation to our student experience fund can support activities that enhance a student’s journey and help them achieve more upon graduation.

Donations of any size can make a difference to the student experience. Generous donations from Gibraltar-based trusts have helped us design and deliver a new social space for students and enable large investments into our library.

Enhance student experience

Building links within the community

We believe that actively engaging with our local community is at the core of our success. Most of our research seminars and events are open to the public and make an impact within to the communities we reach.

Since opening our doors in 2015, we have welcomed hundreds of guests to our Europa Point Campus through various outreach activities and events including our popular Gibraltar History Lectures and Beacon Professor Lectures.

By making a donation you can build on the work so far and contribute to shaping future initiatives that ensure the University is at the centre of Gibraltar’s communities.

Academic excellence through research

We believe that research partnerships can bridge the gap between academia and industry. Research-informed businesses are better-placed to lead and adapt to a demanding marketplace. Through the commissioning of bespoke research at the University of Gibraltar, you can access relevant and valuable knowledge that can give your business the edge.

Research can be commissioned for most industries and sectors and the type of insight will depend on what you are looking to achieve.
