creative sTUDENT fund Supporting the creative talent of the future
Art, Design and Technology have been an integral part of Loughborough since its origins in 1909 Our strong heritage of high quality craftsmanship, design and artistic endeavour ensures that Loughborough remains a popular choice for talented people wishing to study art and design in higher education. Today, Loughborough’s creative departments are amongst the best in the world. The Loughborough Design School brings together world-leading research in Design and Ergonomics, receiving outstanding scores in the National Student Surveys and many awards for its research including a Queen’s Anniversary Prize. The School of the Arts, formerly Loughborough College of Art and Design successfully produces numerous national and international award-winning artists and designers every year. Over the last one hundred years, there has been much to be proud of and celebrate. Artists such as Bryan Organ, Bridget Riley and Terry Shave studied and taught here, and key influencers on the Arts and Crafts Movement in the UK such as Edward Barnsley and Cecil Gough were tutors at Loughborough.
“Fine art at Loughborough provides a sensational environment to work in, generating a collaboration of talented, enthusiastic and professional artists who can and will most certainly stir the art world.” Ben Cohen Fine Art, 2009
Looking to the future Loughborough strives to be at the forefront of art and design practice by encouraging creativity and innovation. To achieve this we also face challenges in: n Ensuring that the most talented and able students, regardless of their social or economic circumstances can study art and design at Loughborough n Continuing to sustain the resources and opportunities to help such talented artists and designers realise their full potential to be outstanding innovators and creatives in the 21st century Throughout Loughborough’s history, our alumni have made major contributions to the world of art, design and technology. We would now like to call upon you, to support Loughborough’s creative talent of the future by giving to the Creative Student Fund. Your support could make a real difference to our students and we hope that you will join us in making a gift. This could be in the form of a single gift, a regular donation or by remembering the Loughborough Creative Student Fund in your will. Thankyou. Professor Terry Kavanagh Dean of The School of the Arts Professor Tony Hodgson Dean of Loughborough Design School

Loughborough University Development Trust Over the last 10 years, Loughborough University Development Trust has received almost £2million in philanthropic donations to support funds like the Creative Scholarship Fund. In turn, many thousands of students have benefitted, and the University has been able to provide a world-class education and experience – as evidenced by Loughborough topping the Times Higher Education’s (THE) Best Student Experience poll five years running. In part, this has been made possible by the generosity of alumni and friends of the University. Some have supported the Trust from its earliest days, and week by week the number of supporters is growing.
“I am very proud of Loughborough’s long history in creative studies and I am pleased to support the Creative Scholarship Fund so that young people continue to benefit from the Loughborough Experience just as I did.”
Alexandra Adams, College of Art 1958
