The tutorial system lies at the heart of a Lincoln education. It is, however, expensive to maintain, and we depend on the health of our endowment to safeguard it. The Fellowship Clubs are a way for alumni to pool together to support particular subject areas. The Fellowship Club recognises anyone who makes a commitment of £10,000 or more over three years. These Clubs provide donors with an annual opportunity to meet fellow members of the Club, current Fellows and students and to hear more about developments in these subjects. Members also receive an annual newsletter of activities of Fellows and students, and invitations to public lectures and other special events. Membership is for a period of five years, and can be renewed. We currently have Fellowship Clubs for History, PPE, CAAH (Classical Art & Archaeology) and Science and are hoping to create one in Mathematics. Please contact the Development Office for further information about the Clubs.
I have been giving to Lincoln for many years, as a way to say thank you for the marvellous four years that I spent there reading Classics. This period of my life was so rich that I want to contribute, even in a small way, to giving other students the opportunity to study what they are passionate about. I strongly believe in learning for learnings sake, and not just to prepare for a well remunerated future job. Hence I have chosen to support the Humanities. In return, I not only have the pleasure of helping students who would otherwise have financial difficulties to pursue their passion, I also really appreciate being invited as member of the CAAH Fellowship Club* to events in College which give the opportunity to meet tutors and to feel, just for a moment, that I am still part of the Lincoln learning community.
