With your help we can support life-changing research, combat student hardship, provide scholarships to students who would not otherwise be able to study at university, and fund student and staff projects that enhance employability, increase participation, improve learning and the student experience.

Your gift will leave a lasting legacy, impacting not only students and staff but also the local community and the wider world.

The following form allows you to make either a single card payment, or a recurring payment (debit or credit cards accepted). If you would prefer to make a payment via direct debit, there is a separate payment page here.

The Stirling Fund

The Stirling Fund was founded in 2001. Each year the fund has made grants to students who are at the brink of leaving university for financial reasons, has supported student sport clubs and societies, funded research, art and heritage projects and much more. Examples of previous projects can be found here.

A gift to the Stirling Fund has a real impact in transforming the student experience, enhancing employability and creating new opportunities for personal development. 


If you would like your gift to go straight to a student struggling financially you can do this by donating to the Hardship section of the Stirling Fund.

100s of students have to drop out of their studies each year because they cannot cope with the financial struggles. Many students have moved away from home for the first time and cannot get the support they need. Due to the heavy workload, it is hard for some students to find a job that will give them enough hours to pay for rent and food.

Last year the generous contributions from our alumni and friends helped aid 162 students and also 33 students so far in the 2016/17 academic year to stay in their studies.

Garden of Time

The Garden of Time is a place where you can celebrate an achievement or remembering a loved one. It is a fitting way to dedicate a tribute to anyone who has loved the Airthrey Estate, the University of Stirling and its beautiful campus. In addition, your donation will be split to support future students and the ongoing development of the Garden.

The Dementia Fund

A gift to the Dementia Fund will support academics and researchers and make ground-breaking research possible by providing critical funding towards their work.

In turn this benefits the wider community who will get direct access to the best practice, methods of treatment and research that is conducted here at the University of Stirling.    

The Dementia Studies department encourages collaborative, inter-disciplinary, critical and reflexive learning and it seeks to produce leaders of change in the dementia field. Further information about the University's dementia research work can be found here.
