Your gift will ensure that more students of outstanding academic potential from under-represented groups have the opportunity to study at Lucy, thrive academically at Cambridge, and progress successfully within their chosen fields.

You will be supporting an extraordinary college as we embark on the next stage of our trailblazing history, helping Lucy remain the go-to college for students intending to have a positive impact on society. Whether our students go on to address inequalities of opportunity in our country, or to become leaders in solving the greatest challenges facing our world, your gift will have lasting and far-reaching benefits.
