Charity information

The Reading List Foundation

We help students from lower-income families in England succeed at University, by awarding £250 Scholarships to fund their textbooks for the first year. Our Scholarships are awarded on merit, by Schools to one of their Year 13 students about to go to University.

Founded 2015

  • Mission statement

    We exist to inspire people - including older graduates - to help fund a younger student's First Year textbooks, providing practical, financial and emotional help. We support students from lower-income households in England.

    We passionately believe:
    Students from lower-income households aspiring to go to university deserve greater financial support than they receive post-2016

    Directing Scholarships to the school we went to, or the community we live in, makes donations more personal and powerful

    We can all be philanthropists – it’s not the preserve of millionaires
