Read on to hear from the types of people you’ll be helping... 

what it's all in aid of...

By playing along and donating, you’ll be supporting students like Wendy. This is what she told us about the difference the York Opportunity Scholarship has made to her life…"By donating you are changing someone's life and you're not just changing their lives but you are changing the lives of their families and the people they go on to help in their career. I am very grateful as I couldn't think of anything better. Please give someone else the opportunity I have been given to change my life. Thank you." - Wendy Caulkin, 1st year BSc Nursing

Anything you can donate or raise will go directly towards ensuring that any student who has a place at York has as few barriers as possible to accessing their place. Your support will go to students from less advantaged backgrounds, including local authority care leavers, students from low income backgrounds, students with disabilities, and students from a Black and ethnic minority background.
