Funders and Sponsors

We work with trusts, foundations and corporate partners who understand the value of transatlantic education exchange, are committed to supporting the impact our grantees and alumni make through their work in addressing global challenges and the specialist knowledge they contribute to their respective sectors and economies.

Work with us

Through many of our specialist opportunities, from our Global Challenges Teaching Awards to our Civic Science Fellowship award to our Stephen Lawrence Award, we are proud to have the support of a number of trusts, foundations, professional associations, and corporate partners. By investing in discipline-specific awards or sponsoring an event from our extensive live and digital annual programme, we can help funders to realise their charitable objectives, ESG goals as well as support the growth of audiences beyond traditional realms. 

We are privileged to include the Rita Allen Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, and the Wallit Foundation as sponsors of our Global Challenges Teaching awards, in partnership with the American Association of Colleges & Universities (AAC&U). We count leading data analytics organisation, Elsevier and the insurance market Lloyd’s of London as partners on discipline specific awards focused, respectively, on data analysis and risk.  The US-UK ’s extensive network of Higher Education Institutions’ on both sides of the Atlantic facilitate targeted research projects and leverage communities of specialists furthering advances in knowledge and teaching. Equally, the prestige of our partner awards is critical in attracting some of the most gifted applicants, thereby contributing to the acquisition and development of talent within specific sectors.  į

Our programme of events includes USA College Day, which regularly attracts over 1640 US universities and over 4,000 UK secondary school students and their families to London every September. As the largest US college fair in Europe, we’re grateful to our current sponsor Jet Blue for helping to make the event such a huge success. Other signature events include our annual Distinguished Lecture, presented in partnership with the University of Edinburgh, Kings College, London and Pembroke College, Oxford and sponsored by the Lois Roth Foundation, which attracts live audiences of 400+ in addition to digital audiences of many thousands.  Our annual - Eccles event at the British Library invites leading commentators to discuss contemporary social and political issues.
