Support the School

Your gift of financial support enables the School of Advanced Study to sustain and enhance its role as the UK's national centre for the support and promotion of world-leading research in the humanities. Our friends and alumni have helped us create a research base for an international community of scholars, grow innovative initiatives and networks, and provide specialist research training to our master's and doctoral students.  

Among the many opportunities for supporting the School are: 

  • Support for named master's and PhD studentships
  • Sponsorship of seminar series and conferences
  • Sponsorship of a range of public engagement activities, including the annual Being Human festival
  • Provision for early career researchers
  • Support for library collections, including digitisation
