Make a Gift or Donation

Making a gift or donation to provide a bursary or scholarship to help students achieve their best, fund vital research in key educational and societal issues or  support community or widening participation initiatives, can help transform the lives of children, young people and communities. Alumni and supporters can make a real difference by donating to a range of projects such as:

Centre for Research in Educational Underachievement

Educational underachievement is one of the most significant, complex and multi-faceted challenges facing society. Our Centre for Research in Educational Underachievement was established to provide innovative, interdisciplinary research and evidence-based responses that will help raise attainment, improve children’s lives and shape future policy and practice. Your support for the work of the Centre will help transform the lives of young people and communities in the most disadvantage areas of Northern Ireland.

Centre for Outdoor Learning

As part of our EcoCampus strategy, the College has ambitious plans to create an outdoor learning centre that will provide an innovative and inspirational resource for schools, intergenerational learning projects and community groups .

Bursaries and Scholarships

Stranmillis is committed to supporting students seeking  access to higher education.  With your help, we can ensure that no student is forced to compromise their studies due to  financial circumstances.  Support in this area may include providing bursaries to help with living costs or a scholarship for an opportunity to participate in study abroad

If you would be interested in finding out more about how you can support the work of the College and help us continue to transform the lives of children, young people and communities, please contact us at alumni@stran.ac.uk

Volunteer

Volunteering is a way of giving back to the University College. Alumni have the power to positively impact and contribute to the College’s Professional and Intergenerational Learning strategy.  Becoming a volunteer, and sharing your talents, skills and experience, is a great way to re-engage with Stranmillis and is rewarding on many levels, professionally and socially.  For example, volunteers can support our local educational initiatives working with disadvantaged communities or get involved with other intergenerational learning projects.
