Donate to the Schumacher College Bursary Fund


People from all over the world, of all ages and backgrounds, have been informed, inspired and encouraged to act by Schumacher College’s 25 years of transformative courses for sustainable living.

We want to offer the opportunity to experience this transformative experience to as many people as possible, particularly in these times of economic, ecological and social uncertainty.

Supporting students

The generosity of donors enables us to extend opportunities for learning by helping Schumacher College offer bursaries and scholarships for its Postgraduate ProgrammesShort Courses, and Vocational Courses. This ensures that individuals from home and overseas can achieve their full potential at Schumacher College.

All gifts – of whatever size – are welcomed, and smaller donations can be amalgamated to create greater bursaries and scholarships. Every gift counts and we invite you to join us in this endeavour.

Your support can help to enable a greater number of students to experience our transformational education programme.

The Schumacher College Bursary Fund is an integral function of the College and the fund consolidates our vision and ethos to create a warm community centred on equality and opportunity irrespective of race, religion, social background and financial constraints, and ensures that Schumacher College retains its unique position as a true Centre of excellence open to all.

We are most grateful to the generosity of our current supporters, both individual donors, trusts and foundations and others, whose donations make such a difference to our students, enabling them to take up their places at our College, through fully or part funding their course fees.

Thank you to all our donors for their generous support.
