As a Warwick graduate and a teacher, Ed Banks (BSc Mathematics 2005-08 and PGCE (Secondary) Mathematics 2008-09) is a strong believer in the importance of education. Higher education should not just be reserved for the privileged few, but for anyone who is capable. This is why he has decided to give something back to Warwick.
Over the last year, I have begun to support the University’s scholarship programme so that other students can enjoy the same educational experience that I benefited from during my time at Warwick. However, supporting student scholarship programmes is just one of the many areas in which Warwick alumni can make a real difference...
Donors can make a gift towards work experience bursaries, library books, prizes for academic excellence or provide backing for students undertaking extra-curricular activities through the Opportunity Fund. All of these things give students the resources they need to make the most of their time at Warwick. Ed feels safe in the knowledge that his contribution will make a real difference to the lives of future students.
Warwick has given me so much since I started my degree and this is my way of giving something back. Warwick is an ambitious institution that aims to become one of the top universities in the world. This means recruiting the best academics, the best staff, and of course the most able students. To do this, the University needs your support. Everything you do really does count and I urge you, like I have, to give something back to Warwick.
