As well as scholarships, your generous allows us to provide The Plus Programme – targeted, on-course support to students from non-traditional backgrounds to help them to make the transition to Higher Education. Through a series of programmes throughout their studies at Leeds your gifts help to create a sense of belonging and to help them to access additional support across the University.
Second year Sustainability & Environmental Management student Meegan Worcester explains the difference this made to her time at Leeds: “When starting university, I didn’t have the best support system compared to other students. But thanks to the support of Footsteps Fund donors, the Plus Programme and the amazing friends I have made, I have learned to value my time at Leeds much more. None of this would have been possible if I’d not received a scholarship. It gives me the constant encouragement and motivation to keep pushing myself out of my comfort zone and striving to challenge myself.”
