How can we make a difference by ensuring that the very best students fulfil their potential?
Where can you find the next prize-winning writer hard at work and enjoy some of the best art in the world?
In 2013, we asked our friends and alumni to help us to raise £50m by 2016. Not only did we achieve this target, but together we exceeded it, raising over £53m in total. Together, we:
- Improved Health research, taking steps towards finding treatments and preventions for prostate cancer.
- Provided countless Opportunities for our students through scholarships and projects designed to enhance the student experience.
- Developed our understanding of the changes in our global Environment.
- Fostered Creativity by sharing the artistic treasures of the Sainsbury Centre with the world.
Now, inspired by our campaign donors, we want to do more. We are extending our finishing line to 2021, broadening our scope to include new projects and raising our sights towards a new target of £100m. We aim to:
- Raise £3m towards the creation of a new international centre for food and health research, the Quadram Institute. Research here will focus on the relationship between diet and disease.
- Offer 500 scholarships to students from low-income households, ensuring the brightest minds have the opportunity to come to UEA, regardless of their financial background.
- Raise £3m towards the development of new science laboratories where our science students will share ideas across disciplines.
- Continue fostering creativity by providing a scholarship for each student on our world-leading Creative Writing Master’s course.
Our goals are ambitious but with your help we can achieve them and truly make a difference.
