MAke a gift that grows...give to soas

Since its launch in 2010,  the SOAS Alumni & Friends Fund (AFF) has provided assistance to students through scholarships, created opportunities through student projects, and reached out to academics in need. The AFF is at the cornerstone of our work as a Development and Alumni Relations team because of the tangible impact it has on the lives of our students. It provides them with opportunities, supports them when they are in need, and empowers their academic voices – all central to the foundations of the unique and vibrant SOAS community we love and cherish. 

As we move closer to the School’s centenary in 2016, the support of our alumni and friends has never been more important. Our centenary celebrations will see the launch of a new campus site in the iconic Senate House and an unprecedented expansion of our academic programmes. With the help of our alumni and friends, we will ensure that SOAS can continue to offer a world-class educational experience to the most deserving students, regardless of their income, status or family background.

We hope that you will be inspired by the stories in our AFF video, all made possible thanks to your donations.
