The Alumni Fund is supported by gifts from the Strathclyde alumni community. Your donations fund scholarships, the library, international study and development, sports clubs and student-led projects. You enable Strathclyde students to realise their potential and have an outstanding university experience.
The impact of your giving over the last year

Your donations in action
The Alumni Fund supports the University of Strathclyde Motorsport team which gives Strathclyde students first-hand experience of designing, developing, building and operating an electric vehicle.
The thirty-strong team recently took their car to Silverstone to take part in Formula Student UK, Europe's most established educational engineering competition. They competed alongside over 50 university teams from around the world and were delighted to take first place in the Cost and Manufacturing event!
Thank you to Strathclyde alumni for making our project possible every year and especially for your support throughout our transition to our first electric vehicle!
