Support IDS

For better lives globally

We transform the knowledge, action and leadership needed for more equitable and sustainable development globally, through our world-class research, learning and teaching.

We are a registered charity with no guaranteed core funding, so philanthropic support is essential for us to continue our pioneering and influential work.

You can help by donating to our General Fund which supports our research activities, or our Scholarship Fund.

Donate to our Scholarship Fund

Supporting today’s scholars is an investment in tomorrow’s leaders who will be uniquely equipped to bring about positive social change.

For some of our most gifted applicants, the course fees, and associated costs of travelling to IDS and living in the UK, is prohibitive. The loss of such talent, of the opportunity to educate and collaborate with those who can make a difference in some of the most challenging corners of the globe, is a loss to us all and to our collective future.

By making a gift to the Scholarship Fund you’llĀ help someone with great potential to realise their dreams and to contribute to building a better world.
