Making a difference

Our current fundraising activity, including the Alumni Fund|, aligns with our five year campaign, The Curiosity Project|. This campaign is an ambitious part of our strategic plan to build on Royal Holloway and Bedford New College’s strengths as a centre for pioneering research and a place where individuals and individuality thrive.

You could also give to Student Opportunities to support scholarships and internships, so that all students have the opportunity to experience a world-class education, regardless of financial means, or to Greatest Needs, a fund which allows the College to respond flexibly to key areas of priority.
