A £1m investment in the next generation

Essex Futures is our promise to support the next generation by providing scholarships to those whose impact on the world would be missed.
Join us.

Here, students leave with more than just a degree, they absorb the Essex Spirit, a unique mindset that teaches them to challenge convention, think globally and do things differently. That's how we have nurtured a community of alumni who inspire, lead, and advocate for others, actively improving the world we live in. And at a time when the world is facing so many challenges, it needs more Essex graduates.

Barriers to education shouldn't still exist, but they do. That's why we're supporting students from every background and unlocking their potential with our new scholarship appeal.

Our campuses are already home to nearly 1,500 student scholars with big ambitions like curing cancer, combating the climate crisis, and defending human rights. But there’s more we can do to break down barriers and help even more students to fulfil their potential at Essex before they go on to tackle the global challenges that lie ahead.

A donation to Essex Futures isn’t just an investment in one student, it’s an investment in the society we share. 

Let's transform the future.
