As you will know, Sir David Greenaway retires as Vice-Chancellor at the end of September, having served our University in that role since 2008.
Sir David’s tenure as Vice-Chancellor is the culmination of a thirty-year commitment to the University of Nottingham and he has led the institution with great distinction at a time of profound change in UK and international higher education.
We know that many colleagues will want to thank Sir David for this commitment and a number of you have asked how to make a gift in recognition of his service. In discussion with Sir David we have identified two areas that will provide valuable support to students and which resonate with him personally.
The two programmes are:
The Greenaway Scholarships, focused on Nottingham and the East Midlands
Sir David has led the University at a time of profound change in higher education while maintaining Nottingham’s position and reputation. He has also been a strong and compelling advocate for widening participation and the University’s role in supporting education in the region, not least through the University’s innovative Nottingham Potential programme. The Greenaway Scholarships aim to remove financial barriers for ambitious students from low-income families who reside in Nottingham and the East Midlands.
The Sir David Greenaway Sports Scholarships
Our Sport Scholarship programme will allow the University to drive our sporting vision and elite ambitions, and establish Nottingham as a first choice for students looking to combine a high-quality education and an excellent sporting experience. Furthermore, it will help cultivate a culture of performance sport encouraging all students to aim high and achieve their potential. Your support will help us to recruit and develop the highest level of sporting athletes and open the door for them to compete in the world’s most prestigious competitions, while continuing to achieve their full academic potential.
