Five undergraduates tell us what the St John's Studentships mean to them

"I don't have to worry about financial constraints and can focus on my studies and other areas"

To mark Giving Tuesday on 28 November, we spoke to some of our undergraduates who, with the generous support of alumni and other donors, have benefited from College Studentships. In this short film, five current students explain what the Studentships scheme has meant to them and how it helped them to study at Cambridge.

Studentships help to cover the living costs of undergraduates at St John's who come from lower-income families, alongside the wider Cambridge Bursary Scheme. They are funded entirely by friends and alumni, and with their support we can help more young people to fulfil their potential.
