Make a donation to enable academics and students affected by conflict to pursue their studies

At a time when the media directs the attention of all of us to the plight of those affected by Europe’s refugee and migrant crisis, UCL is committed to supporting academics and students whose research and education has been disrupted and whose lives are at risk, through funding and placements enabling them to complete their education and research.

Working with the Council for At-Risk Academics (CARA) since 2006, UCL has a track record of helping academics who are unable to continue their research in their home country. CARA (founded in 1933 by some of Britain’s foremost academics and scientists) seeks to help academics and scientists who are fleeing from discrimination, persecution and violence in some of the world’s most dangerous places by securing placements through their UK University Network.

UCL also works with two important student-facing organisations: 

  • The Saïd Foundation, a non-political and non-sectarian organisation which supports students predominately in Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan and the United Kingdom to complete their education.
  • The Windle Trust, which supports students who are internally displaced or otherwise affected by conflict. The geographical focus is East, Central or the Horn of Africa and applicants must be resident in Kenya, Uganda, Sudan and South Sudan.

This fund-raising campaign is in support of all three organisations: CARA, for academics; and Saïd and Windle, for students.
