Transforming Your Students’ Experiences: Fundraising for Targeted Scholarships
Transforming your students’ experiences: Fundraising for Targeted Scholarships.


In a globalised world, universities provide or aim to provide international education, and this is largely manifest in international recruitment activities. This underpins dominant economic narratives, that rarely consider nuances in financial barriers to education, which targeted scholarships can contribute to ameliorating (Fakunle, 2021).


Targeted scholarships can therefore create more opportunities to support the aspirations of educational institutions to provide internationalised classroom and cross-cultural learning involving staff and students from diverse cultural backgrounds. This in turn can facilitate experiential and transformative learning opportunities for all (Fakunle, et. al., 2022) preparing students to work and live in a global world.


However, students’ experiential and aspirational rationales for embarking on international higher education are rarely discussed (Fakunle, 2021). Consequently, in mainstream internationalisation of [higher] education discourses, targeted scholarships are hardly considered as part of strategic initiatives for diversifying, enhancing, and transforming student experiences.
