Lioness Scholarship

In honour of the 30th anniversary of the first women students at Hatfield, the College is establishing a one-year scholarship for a female postgraduate student from a developing country where access to higher education for women is limited.

The Lioness Scholar will live in College and become an active member of the College MCR, whilst studying a one-year postgraduate programme at Durham University. The scholarship will pay all university and college fees together with a substantial allowance towards living costs.

We are pleased to annouce that we have received applications for our first Lioness Scholar. Whilst we are excited to offer this first scholarship, we only have partial funding for the scholarship in future years.

Your support will make a real and immediate difference. With your help, we can ensure that the Lioness Scholarship can continue to be offered to an aspiring and talented female student.

30 years after we first opened our doors to women, we remain committed to the idea that access to education is a basic right, not a privilege; we aim to be open to every gifted student who aspires to join us.

We invite you to lend your support today and help us to fulfil this aim.
