Samuel, has become involved with all that King’s and London has to offer. He attended the One Young 2019 Conference in London with thousands of other people from around the world, which he singles out as a real highlight for him. He was honoured to meet so many innovators and activists willing to make sacrifices in order to make the world a more just, safe and equal place.
After feeling a little daunted at the scale of the conference, Samuel was quickly reassured by another King’s student. ‘He mentored me, helped me navigate the space and make the most of being at such a large conference.’
'Being a student at King’s gives me hope and equips me with the skills, knowledge and network that reassures me that I will have a positive impact on the world.'
About Sanctuary Scholarships
The Sanctuary Scholarships are part of King's Sanctuary Programme. They are open to all, regardless of faith, political creed or nationality. The scholarships represent King’s commitment to equipping students for success and supporting them in reaching their potential. These scholarships include a full tuition fee waiver and help with living costs for the duration of the students’ courses.
Successful applicants receive either a Sanctuary Scholarship or a Jesus the Light Sanctuary Scholarship. The name ‘Jesus the Light’ is a celebration of the anonymous supporter’s own personal faith, compelling them to help others. It not only reflects King’s historic Church of England foundation, but also our diverse community of beliefs and backgrounds.
The Sanctuary Scholarships have a profound effect on students and show how philanthropy is creating more access to higher education.
