 New stretch target

The scholars total fees may fun to thousands of pounds to any extra funds raised will go directly to supporting them.

Sanctuary Scholars are students from refugee and asylum-seeking backgrounds who have scholarships to study at the University of Bristol. Having a scholarship excludes them from legal aid - threatening their ability to pursue their claims for asylum or challenge conditions like study bans.  

The Home Office recently issued a devastating Study Ban on a current final year Scholar, just before their final assessments, and the Sanctuary Scholars Legal Aid Fund was able to support them with the huge legal costs associated.

Thankfully the Study Ban has now been lifted but we still need to fundraise to cover ongoing legal costs associated with their case.

It's predicted that they will need between £4500 - £7500 in total.

To show solidarity, students from Bristol STAR have teamed up with Cardiff STAR. They’ll be walking the 13 mile long Bath-Bristol railway path together on 18th June to raise awareness and much needed funds. 

Please give what you can to make a big difference to the outcome for this Scholar.
