Crowdfunding at Brunel

Crowdfunding at Brunel

Brunel’s supportive community has been offering a helping hand to students for many years. Our alumni and other supporters help provide scholarships, emergency bursary support and life-changing research funding.

Many alumni find that enabling our committed and talented students to reach their potential is a rewarding experience.

There are two upcoming opportunities to for you to provide much-needed financial support to our students


The last few years has seen an enormous growth in Crowdfunding. Brunel has developed a relationship with the Crowdfunding site, Hubbub, to allow our students to raise support for their innovative ideas.

Crowdfunding harnesses the communications power of the internet to allow those with good ideas to ask for support from the crowd – in this case including you, their fellow Brunel alumni.

Over the next few months, we will be launching a number of exciting projects which have been put together by Brunel’s brightest designers, engineers and innovators. To see the projects, find out more and also to pledge support for ideas which catch your imagination, please visit

Telephone campaign

The annual telephone campaign will take place between 1 and 27 June. Thirty- four of our current students will be calling alumni to chat about news, events and developments at Brunel and to compare experiences. This will be a great opportunity to pass on some alumni wisdom to our students – from how to make themselves more employable, to coping with big workloads. Our students love learning from our graduates and we find that alumni really enjoy sharing their experiences too.

As part of the campaign, students will also be looking for people to contribute to the Brunel Scholarships Fund, to help bright and determined students that need some support in order to complete their studies. For more information about the Brunel Scholarships Fund, click here.
