Ukrainian Bursary Appeal

Supporting Ukrainian Refugees attending Roedean


Roedean has long provided a home and an education for those in need, from our very earliest days, we have provided bursaries and scholarships to those for whom a Roedean education would otherwise be out of reach, or who find themselves in times of hardship, including Jewish refugees in World War II. 

Often this support has been provided due to the incredible generosity of our community, whether through the Old Roedeanians' Scholarship Fund, or through donations to the School's Bursary Fund. It is always heart-warming to see future generations of Roedeanians being supported by past and current Roedeanians.

As a community, we are deeply moved by the war in Ukraine, and the difficult circumstances many Ukrainians now find themselves in, being forced to leave behind their homes, their family and friends, and their communities. It is important to us to do everything we can to provide support to them. This has become even more apparent now we have begun to meet with some of the families who have reached the UK, one of whom told us how they have travelled here with just one suitcase between the family, leaving everything else, including their father and brothers behind.

We have already received several applications from students who will be coming to the UK, or who are already here, under the Homes for Ukraine scheme. Our hope is that together with you, our Roedean family, we can provide 110% Bursaries to these students. Thank you in advance for showing how warm, welcoming and supportive Roedeanians are to those in need of our help.

The Aim

We have already been contacted by several ORs and Parents who are interested in finding out how they can help support Ukrainian students. We have therefore set up a bursary fund to support these students.

Our target for this appeal is £50,000, this would provide support for two years to one student.

Our aim is, through funding from the School and your support, to be able to offer up to ten sudents 110% Day Girl Bursary plces, meaning that the funding will not only cover their school fees, but also:

Day bus travel to and from School

Full School uniform and Sports Kit

Extra-curricular activities

Excursions and Trips

Language Support

Providing this extra level of support will mean that the girls will be able to take full advantage of their time at Roedean, and all of the opportunities available to them here, both inside and outside the classroom.

How can you help?

We know that pressures on living costs are high at the moment, but we also recognise that the Roedean family is a very generous one, with community at its heart, and so we know that many of you will want to support this appeal and these students.

All gifts, whether large, or small, will help us reach our target, and to help we have broken down what your donation will mean for the recipient.

Thank you

Thank you for your support. We are looking forward to welcoming the students to Roedean in September, and we are incredibly grateful for your support to help us do so. We are very pleased that six of the students have also joined us this month to being settling in to Roedean.

If your generosity is such that we raise more than the target, then we will be able to use these funds to ensure that even more girls either from Ukraine elsewhere, are able to join Roedean through our Bursary Fund.
