At Edinburgh Napier we want to give all our students an experience that will enrich their lives. We also want to give them an edge when they leave university and embark on their career.
That’s why we encourage our students to get involved in a unique project – like immersing themselves in research, doing an international exchange, or developing their creative talents.
But to be innovative, students often need financial support. By funding a Student Grant, you could ensure that students don’t miss out on an experience that changes their lives – and boosts their prospects.
Here’s how your gift could help:
Graphic Design student Lewis Brooks wanted to use his creative skills to help others. So we awarded him a grant to set up a portable design studio, offering his services as a designer to local small businesses – for free.
Broadening students’ horizons
Ryan Latto, an Adult Nursing student, travelled to remote Tanzania to teach vital first aid skills to secondary school students. He used to his grant to buy teaching supplies and first aid kits, for his life-saving lessons.
Keeping elite athletes on track
A grant helped Criminology student Rachel Robertson combine her academic work with her career as an athlete. It covered her travel costs, as she represented Edinburgh Napier in long jump at national competitions.
Conducting crucial research
We awarded a grant to Product Design student Ben Polhill, enabling him to travel to Amsterdam and research his dissertation and final year project. He examined how improving a city’s cycling infrastructure could improve its cycling culture.
