How can I contribute to the University’s response to Covid-19?

We know many of our former students and supporters would like to contribute too, so here are just some of the ways you can get involved.

We have set up our Covid-19 Partnerships Fund to support students facing hardship because of Covid-19, support the University’s research response and support projects helping the most vulnerable in the Edinburgh community.
