Giving Tuesday at RGU

Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

Tomorrow, the 28th of November, RGU will be joining #GivingTuesday with a fundraising campaign set to help exceptional students through their education. The aim of this campaign is to support talented students from underrepresented backgrounds coming from underprivileged areas, so that they can have a chance to achieve their goals in higher education, just like anybody else.

Jade Gilbert was supported by the Access scholarship last year while in her fourth year at Gray’s School of Art and she feels really grateful for the donations made on Giving Tuesday: “I felt so proud that I had been given recognition for the hard work that I had put into my studies. It [the scholarship] offers a sense of honour, pride and a higher sense of accomplishment. Most importantly it gave me confidence.”

Architecture student Marie Airth was also supported by the scholarship created by the many who donated to the 2016 RGU Giving Tuesday Appeal. She said: “When I heard that I was being awarded a scholarship I really could not believe I had been offered this amazing opportunity.” For her, this has been a huge boost to her confidence and has helped her achieve her ambitions.

This is a life-changing initiative that helps students by offering them financial support along with a dedicated mentoring and training programme. To increase the value of the donations, every donation made (including gift aid) will be matched 100% by the Robertson Scholarship Trust through its improved scholarship scheme.

You can donate online, by mail or in person at West Lodge, Garthdee Campus and at the collection boxes that will be available around campus.
