Centenary Appeal




Celebrating 100 years by supporting the next generation of gifted students


In our centenary year, we asked all SSEES alumni and friends of SSEES to make a gift in support of our students - the next generation of rising stars. All the money raised through this appeal will be channelled into bursaries and scholarships; essential funding that more and more students rely on.

The results are in!

We raised a total of £28,442

These funds were raised from centenary year activities including the Alumni Dinner raffle, the sale of centenary mugs, from responses to email and telephone campaigns, and an extremely generous donation from a former SSEES student. The funds will be used to offer a number of undergraduate bursaries, MA bursaries for SSEES graduates, and a PhD scholarship for a SSEES graduate. These are planned to be awarded for the 2017 cohort.

We would like to say a most heartfelt thank you to those who donated. Your generous donations will enable us to support the most gifted; those who will continue to fly the flag for SSEES and to build the success story that every alumnus and alumna is part of. 

Although the centenary year has passed, we continue to rely on support from donations to help our students and you can donate via the regular SSEES appeal.

Thank you
