This year, in celebration of our Diamond Jubilee, we have exciting plans to launch a new initiative aimed at supporting and empowering our students:
The Futures Programme
The Futures Programme will be a community of students, alumni, local businesses and supporters, connected to create opportunities, raise aspirations, and transform lives so every student has the confidence and support they need to achieve their very best, and define their own futures.
Futures Fund and Scholarships
Now more than ever it is vital to ensure that funding is not a barrier for talented students to achieve a degree at Canterbury Christ Church University. Launching during our Diamond Jubilee year, the Futures Fund will create a series of community funded Futures Scholarships, offering recipients a £5,000 bursary for each year of study. Scholars will also receive access to a mentor, and bespoke coaching and workshops to build confidence and employability.
Supporters of Futures Scholarships will have the opportunity to meet the scholar during their time at the University. Naming opportunities will also be available for fully funded scholarships.
Our community of alumni, local businesses and supporters have the talent, experience and expertise to make an impact on our students’ futures. Alongside the Futures Fund and Scholarships, our aim is to build a network of Futures partners who can make a real difference by offering their time as a Futures Guide, a Futures Mentor, or simply sharing their experiences through a Futures Story.
