Academic Support

Alumni generosity helps Fitzwilliam promote intellectual excellence.

As a constituent part of one of the World's top universities, Fitzwilliam seeks to challenge and support students in their learning and research, and to recognise their achievements.

Prizes and Scholarships

The promotion of academic excellence through prizes and scholarships helps raise aspirations across the board, as well as recognise the success of individuals. As the number of Firsts continues to grow, so too does the College's need for named awards. £5000 establishes a new endowed prize or scholarship.

Subject Funds

The College is grateful for contributions to endowed funds in particular subjects.  Donations to these funds help to underpin the intellectual life of the College, enabling Directors of Studies to support student learning in innovative, subject-specific ways.


For more information about how you can support the academic life of Fitzwilliam through our subject funds, or if you would like to discuss endowing a prize or scholarship, please contact the Development Office.
