Support the Vice-Chancellor’s Fund

The Vice-Chancellor’s Fund was launched in 2010 to provide scholarships to deserving students whose studies and university experience would benefit from increased financial support.

Driven by De Montfort University's Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dominic Shellard, the Vice-Chancellor's Fund reflects his personal interest in the welfare, ambition and potential of all our students and receives support from senior staff, board members, alumni and friends of the university, including the Vice-Chancellor himself.

This year the Vice-Chancellor’s Fund is supporting three key areas: the Inspiration Prize, the Reverend Jesse Jackson Prize, and the Vice-Chancellor’s Bursary.

To make your gift please fill out the donation section of the Vice-Chancellor’s Fund brochure and return it to The Advancement Office, 0.13 Trinity House, De Montfort University, The Gateway, Leicester, LE1 9BH’

In these challenging times, we need your help to make a difference.

As a graduate, you will always be part of our past - now, you can be part of our future.
