Please give now to welcome students fleeing war and repression.

Ongoing conflicts and human rights abuses worldwide mean that increasing numbers of bright students are forced to flee their countries and stop their education. Even the most able students face great uncertainty about whether they can ever return to study.

Your support today will establish the Balliol Sanctuary Fund, to create sustainable, long-term and secure funding for scholars seeking sanctuary from crisis.

  • Gifts of all levels will help to fund scholarships for students seeking sanctuary, covering their full tuition and living costs.
  • Our initial aim is to fund on an ongoing basis at least one undergraduate and one postgraduate sanctuary scholarship.
  • Every donation you make towards this goal will be doubled – thanks to partnerships between the Balliol Sanctuary Fund and a range of College and University funds.

Your gifts will encourage and support these bright minds to pursue their studies at Balliol and develop their skills and knowledge. 

Together, we can build on our community’s proud tradition of support and make a lasting difference for students who have been forced from their homes and countries by conflict and repression.

Every gift from Old Members and friends will make a difference for students seeking sanctuary from crisis. Thank you for all your support.
