About the Campaign

Each year, at the end of Michaelmas term, a team of students takes on the task of phoning the alumni and friends of Selwyn. They speak to members about their time in College, ask them to share their wisdom with younger Selwynites, and seek help for current and future generations with a gift towards student support. This year, the campaign also aims to get alumni involved in a unique project: building a new library and auditorium.

The College was founded in the great age of Victorian philanthropy, and it is that spirit of giving that has inspired its 134 years of history. Having access to bursaries can make a world of difference to many students, ensuring all Selwynites have the best opportunities, irrespective of their financial background, and upholding our core principle of 'merit over means'. In addition to bursaries, our student support funds also provide hardship grants for those who experience unexpected financial difficulty during their time here.

The 2018 Campaign

The response to the December 2018 campaign has been fantastic, with over £213,000 raised by the end of the campaign. Our callers would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part!

We do hope that many of you have had a great conversation with a current student. We hope that we will manage to reach you next year, but in the mean time please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

If you need to get in touch about the campaign, please contact our Development Officer, Emma Karslake, on +44 (0) 1223 63937 or email ek398@cam.ac.uk.
