I want to thank all of our loyal and committed alumni and friends who support students through regular donations to the Sussex Fund or named scholarships. You have helped transform so many lives.  

I’m delighted to share with you some of our scholars' personal stories; they are truly inspiring and show how your generosity makes a real difference. I hope you enjoy reading them and that you take pride in knowing that your kindness has helped these remarkable students to realise their aspirations. Their stories demonstrate that a scholarship has the power to not only change the life of an individual, but to shape the world and make it a better place.
