Graduate Scholarships and Bursaries

The Keys’ Bursary Endowment Fund

Your gift will help supporting unfunded or only partially funded student

GCR members themselves have created The Keys' Bursary Endowment Fund. It has been set up with monies from the old unclaimed deposits on keys and a donation from GCR savings. In addition the current GCR is encouraging all its Members to make a regular termly donation, which it is hoped people will continue, on a monthly basis, once they have gone down.

Many graduate students are increasingly finding that further study is unaffordable thus bursary support is a vital part of Christ Church’s plans.


American Friends’ Scholarship 

In 1995 it was decided to establish the American Friends’ Scholarships for American graduates of North American universities who wished to pursue graduate studies in any discipline at Christ Church.

Support of these Scholarships was the initial goal of the American Friends’ Annual Appeals and over a period of time funds were raised to support as many as six or seven scholars annually. The principal component of the American Friends’ Annual Appeal remains the support of these Scholarships which have gone from strength to strength. Since their inception 48 students have benefited from them, many for more than one year.

Thanks to the generosity of our U.S. resident Old Members and friends since 2004 the American Friends have raised $ 273,000 for the American Friends’ Scholarships. Should you wish to support the Friends in this project, or indeed any other, please contact:
