Making a difference to Trinity Hall in 2018-19

Support from our alumni and friends makes a huge difference to the College community enabling us to fulfil our objectives of offering further financial support to students in need; maintaining an excellent level of education and pastoral care; and improving our buildings and facilities.

“Through all the challenges and the exciting moments I sometimes sit back in amazement at the experience I am having at Cambridge and how truly lucky I am to be able to undertake part of my training at this University, for that I cannot thank you enough for your kind donation to Trinity Hall and in turn to my education.”

– Marissa, 2016, PhD Biological Sciences

“My graduate experiences have taught me that a PhD is not just a degree. It is intensive training to become independent, sharpen my soft skills and push me to think beyond the status quo. My affiliation with Cambridge as a PhD graduate would unlock many more paths, and I plan to continuously be involved in translational research, aiming to contribute and make an impact as an alumnus.”

– Edward Tan, 2015, PhD Engineering
