Donors giving £1,050 or more to the University in a single academic year are identified as members of The Charter Society, recognising the significant support given by alumni in this celebration of 50 years since the granting of our Royal Charter.
Being a part of this Society will inspire your peers and fellow alumni to consider their gifts to Aston and remind others of the importance of supporting higher education.
Many students come to Aston because of the opportunities that we create, opportunities for securing a well-recognised degree and our links with industry. The support we offer to students with limited financial resources is an essential contribution to maximising the talent pool of qualified people as well as encouraging social mobility.
An Aston scholarship can often be the difference that enables our students to take-up and continue their studies and allows them time to participate in other activities outside their academic studies. I’m sure this is a huge factor in Aston’s unsurpassed completion rates.
To celebrate the 50 years of success, Aston’s Charter Society has been established as an alumni membership group that will be vital in continuing the support of Aston scholarships. That is why I would whole-heartedly encourage you to join me and consider becoming a member. Be part of the institution that creates opportunity and raises aspirations
