Gordon's Forever

Bursary Programme

It is a belief at the heart of the Robert Gordon’s College philosophy that the school should be accessible to boys and girls from a variety of backgrounds in North East Scotland, as it has been since its foundation.  

Robert Gordon's College has a strong and enviable tradition of bursary provision. On average each year one in eight of our senior school pupils benefit from our Bursary programme.It is our ambition to continue to grow our Bursary programme to increase the number of bursaries available. Achieving this goal will mean greater opportunities for more children in the North East of Scotland.

As we build the College endowment which supports bursaries we continue to raise funds to be able to offer assisted fee places at Robert Gordon’s College on a continuous basis. For a fully assisted place in perpetuity, a capital fund of at least £330,000 is required to generate enough income annually. For a fully assisted place for six years, an income fund of at least £78,000 is required to award a senior school bursary.

We need your help if we are going to achieve our aspiration of doubling the number of full fee bursaries we can offer.

Gordon's Forever: together we can change lives

Bob Crawford, Class of '39

"Being able to attend Gordon’s on a bursary significantly increased my opportunities in life. My Gift was prompted by my desire to follow the admonition of our Founder, to repay this debt."

Bill Rattray, Class of '76

"For myself, the Bursary I received allowed opportunities in my life that I might never have had; I would like to feel that I can now play a part in offering such opportunities to others."

Ashara Taylor, Class of '10

"A bursary to RGC presented me with opportunities, both academic and otherwise, which allowed me to realise my potential and prepare me for my career. Robert Gordon's College was founded to help the less fortunate and I am proud that the RGC of today remains committed to this goal."

Robert Jones. Class of '48

"It has been a privilege to put something back into the school which gave me so much, but which I would never have been able to attend without the Bursary I received."
