Celebrating 30 Years of Schumacher College – Our Anniversary Bursary CampaignWould you like to help make a difference to the next 30 years of Schumacher College?
This year marks 30 years of transformative learning at Schumacher College.
As part of our programme of celebrations, we are asking for your help to make Schumacher’s unique learning experience more affordable and accessible to as many students as possible through our bursary and scholarship programmes.
why do we need your help?
Our bursary and scholarship schemes are designed to help those who would not otherwise be able to afford to study at Schumacher College. Your support can make an enormous difference in enabling those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, including minority groups who are under-represented in higher education.
We welcome donations at any level; your support of £10, £50 or even £100 can help to offset student tuition costs. Our average bursary award in the past academic year was under £3500, less than half of the cost of tuition.
We also welcome contributions to named scholarship funds. If you are interested in contributing to or establishing a programme-specific scholarship award, we invite you to contact us for further conversation.
with your help, we can:
Open up our programmes to a much wider range of people, including minority groups who are under-represented in higher education, giving all students a fairer chance
A remarkable history; an illustrious future
We are celebrating the nearly 20,000 alumni who have shared in the deeply immersive learning at the College – from master’s programmes and short courses to wild swims in the River Dart and harvesting courgettes from the Gardens to making biscuits and washing up in the kitchen to settling into the Old Postern or Chicken Shed for an evening talk. We are celebrating our legacy and our vision for the future in a world where the need for change on environmental and social issues is as pressing as ever.
Looking ahead, four new programmes are set to launch this year – including MA Engaged Ecology; MA Movement, Mind and Ecology; MSc Regenerative Food, Farming and Enterprise; and Schumacher College’s first-ever undergraduate degree, our BSc in Regenerative Food and Farming. Both our new and existing programmes build upon Schumacher’s core mission of teaching for head, heart, and hands, and help to expand both our learning community and our impact in the world.
