Our vision is that anyone who has the ability should be able to experience and benefit from a UCL education. Our scholarship donors are making this a reality. 

In 2022, we met with three recipients of different UCL scholarships at their graduation ceremonies to learn how their scholarships changed their lives; how their degrees prepared them for the world of work; and what they would say to anyone considering supporting scholarships at UCL.
