Donate to Marshal Papworth


To help many more students benefit from our scholarships we rely on the generous support of organisations. Our Masters programme costs on average £18,000 per student and our Marshal Papworth 10-week short course costs £5,000 per student. Over the next two years we aim to support 15 students in achieving a Masters in their chosen subject and help 22 students to complete our short course.

As an organisation there are a number of ways in which you can help us to achieve our target:

  • sponsoring a student
  • sponsoring part of our scholarship programme
  • choosing us as your organisation’s charity of the year
  • payroll giving
  • support in kind through product donations
  • compete on our behalf in charity events
  • event support
  • working with our team to develop a tailor-made support package as part of an overall sustainability programme, corporate social responsibility plan or staff engagement strategy.

These are just a few of our suggestions as to how you can help. If you have some of your own ideas that you would like to discuss we would be more than happy to meet with you.

For more information on support or to arrange a meeting please contact Sandra Lauridsen on 01733 363514 or email
