Giving to Kent

The First 500 Fund

The main aim of the First 500 Fund is to support the First 500 Scholarship. This award helps today’s Kent students to have the same opportunities enjoyed by the First 500 – a university experience free of financial worry – and will provide a lasting record of the contribution of Kent’s founding students. 

If you would like to support the First 500 Scholarship, a donation form has been produced to allow alumni to contribute directly to the First 500 Fund. Funds are used solely for projects supported by donors, who were consulted on the establishment of the First 500 Scholarship and will be involved in future funding decisions. You can also donate to the fund online.

Completed donation forms should be returned to the Development Office, Rutherford Annexe, University of Kent, Canterbury, Kent CT2 7NX

Members of the First 500 not currently in touch with the University should email to update their contact details.
