The Sanctuary Scholarships
In January 2017, SOAS announced six undergraduate and one postgraduate scholarships for displaced people. The scholarships cover tuition fees but they do not cover living costs.
Displaced people cannot access Student Finance so the only way these students will be able to take their places at the university is through financial support.
So far thousands of pounds has been raised but to ensure the scholarships are sustainable, we need to keep going.
All of the money will go to the living costs of those on the Sanctuary Scholarships allowing them to continue their lives in the UK.
What we're doing
We are a group of students from different universities around London who believe in equality of access to education. In the absence of government support we have seen the need to raise the money ourselves.
We have committed to raising money to support the Sanctuary Scholarships, with everything raised through the run going directly towards this.
