Support ISH

International Students House

At ISH, our charity mission of supporting students in achieving their academic and career aspirations in an environment that actively promotes global friendship is at the core of everything that we do. Our home at 229 Great Portland street is a vibrant hub of activity and all profit from our café/bar and venue spaces directly supports our charity activity. Every time you buy a coffee, attend a gig, book or refer our venues you are supporting our students so do remember to pop in to the Thirsty scholar when you’re in the area and check our listings for upcoming events.

Through our scholarships, hardship fund and comprehensive offering of cultural events and support activities, we provide our students with a transformational and immersive experience that would not be possible without the generosity of our donors, partners and clients. There are a number of ways that you can get involved in supporting ISH and help us to continue to transform lives.

WHAT can I support?

In 2022/23 ISH offered 38 accommodation scholarships. To sustain and grow the program we need ongoing support. Donors can make a contribution to the overall scholarship fund or could sponsor a full named scholarship/s.

Donors can contribute to the hardship fund which offers grants or loans of up to £1000 to students who encounter an unforeseen financial emergency during their studies. You can donate here >>

General donations are also welcomed and will be used to support the areas of the charity mission with the greatest need. Donate Now
