Access to Education for All
Between October 5 and November 8 2020 we ran the Access to Education for All campaign, raising essential funds to ensure that Scholars’ studies were not disrupted by Covid-19.
We raised £9,025.09 thanks to the generosity of our donors. This was then matched by a partner meaning that £18,050.18 went directly towards supporting Ashinaga UK Scholars during the pandemic.
We hosted a calendar of online events during the campaign:
“How to Make a Successful International Application to a UK University” Webinar
- International Guide 2021/22 (PDF 4.2mb)
- Bristol City Virtual Tour (Website)
- Introducing the University of Bristol (Youtube)
- Life in a Leading City (Youtube)
