Access for Talent

Gifts to our Access Fund enable us to encourage the brightest and best women, regardless of background or means, to come Newnham.

We encourage applications from students with strong academic potential from all financial backgrounds. Our outreach efforts focus on those who might think Cambridge is too expensive or ‘not for them’. Our Schools Liaison Officer visits schools with no tradition of sending students to Oxbridge, organises subject Taster Days and runs an email Q&A list for over 850 teachers. She also organises wider recruitment initiatives such as the highly successful Woolf Essay Prize and the new Engineering, Science and History Prizes for year 12 students.
