The 2006 Bursary
I hope, like us, you are looking forward to our Ten Years On Dinner at Pembroke on Friday 9 September. We were delighted to catch up with so many of you at the drinks reception at the National Theatre in April and this dinner in College will be a further opportunity to catch up with friends and share experiences since graduation.
As was mentioned at the April drinks, we are keen to mark our first reunion by giving something back to students at the College today.
Tuition and living expenses at Cambridge now amount to roughly £16,000 a year – this is an intimidating amount which may well deter many bright individuals from applying to the College. As your Reunion Co-Chairs, we propose that our year collectively raises funds to establish a ‘2006 Bursary’. The Bursary will be presented to the College at our reunion dinner at Pembroke on 9 September and then awarded in October 2016 to a student from a household income of less than £12,000 in the form of a £6,000 fee waiver.
Our aim is to raise at least £6,000 – enough for one bursary. We are writing to ask you to make a gift of £30 per year for three years to the ‘2006 Bursary’. Every gift counts, no matter the size, and our goal is to make a change collectively.
We hope you will help the 2006 year group to make a difference and open up opportunities for talented individuals who otherwise might not be able to benefit from a Pembroke education.
With best wishes,
Reunion Drinks Reception
