IDS’s vision is of equal and sustainable societies, where everyone can live secure, fulfilling lives free from poverty and injustice.
IDS alumni are uniquely placed to understand that achieving our vision needs new kinds of research and knowledge to be developed and shared in new ways, alongside continued investment in the leaders of tomorrow.
IDS has no guaranteed core funding, and philanthropic support is essential to continue our pioneering and influential research, teaching and learning, and communications and impact work.
You can donate to the IDS Scholarship Fund or to the IDS General Fund online or by post, if you wish to discuss a donation further please contact the alumni office or complete the short form below.
Supporting today’s scholars is an investment in tomorrow’s leaders who will be uniquely equipped to bring about positive social change.
For some of our most gifted applicants, the course fees, and associated costs of travelling to IDS and living in the UK, is prohibitive. The loss of such talent, of the opportunity to educate and collaborate with those who can make a difference in some of the most challenging corners of the globe, is a loss to us all and to our collective future.
By making a gift to the Scholarship Fund you’ll help someone with great potential to realise their dreams and to contribute to building a better world.
