On Tuesday, 27 November people around the world participated in #GivingTuesday, a global movement dedicated to giving and volunteering to help others.
This year, two alumni came together to create a matching gift challenge. We are pleased to announce that alumni rose to the challenge and gave over £10,000 in one week thus unlocking the £10,000 from the challenge gifts. Gifts will support Lincoln students by providing small hardship awards for undergraduates who have unexpected financial needs and by creating a scholarship which will fully fund a one-year scholar from the EU studying an MSt in the Humanities Division. The University was offering matched funding to support graduate scholarships and we were also able to take advantage of this programme.
A great thanks to the over 80 alumni who participated in this giving week.
