Lincoln University launches Annual Appeal
05 November 2021 | News
Lincoln University is seeking support to continue its crucial mission of growing a brighter future for society.
Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Bruce McKenzie says Lincoln is privileged to have a community of generous supporters who help the university to make its vision possible.
"We would be delighted if some of our alumni and supporters are in a position to contribute to this year’s campaign. We might be New Zealand’s oldest land-based university, but we are focused on the future and it’s looking bright.
"Lincoln is consistently carrying out cutting-edge research, finding innovative solutions to global issues, championing collaboration and creating opportunities to bring people together to achieve great things," Professor McKenzie says.
"Every day, I am inspired by the passion and zeal of our lecturers, faculty members, postgraduate and undergraduate students. I am also proud of the successes of our alumni community, who consistently make incredible achievements in their chosen fields.
Our donors can be confident that they are contributing to something very special when they support Lincoln. They are also contributing to a sustainable and productive economy, as this is where our teaching and research efforts lie.

Annual Appeal 2021
The Lincoln University Foundation Scholarship Fund supports a range of scholarships at undergraduate and postgraduate level and is a singular way to help future generations achieve their goals.
The financial commitment to attend university is one of the biggest barriers to study. Even with support for fees, it can be challenging for students to fund their studies, accommodation, and travel. Lincoln University is always keen to receive support for scholarship offerings.

The Lincoln University Living Laboratory brings together students, researchers and external partners to address real world challenges in practical environments. Contributions to this fund will be used to support special projects, visiting speakers and site visits.
Current projects include:
- The Arboretum – focusing on revitalisation, ecology and the environment. Children’s University participants also carry out activities at the Arboretum.
- Dairy Lab futures – investigating sustainable farming systems, testing new approaches and measuring the outcomes.
- Mt Hutt Forest and Bike Park – exploring the challenges of land use, parks and outdoor recreation.
In 2028, Lincoln University will celebrate its 150th anniversary. To mark the occasion, a curated history of the university will be prepared in time for the celebrations.
The project will be a dynamic, visual representation of Lincoln’s story, covering the pre-history of the campus site through to 2028, with oral histories, archival footage and the many voices and narratives of Lincoln. For more information about Lincoln’s history, see the Living Heritage website.
Funds will go towards recording stories and transcribing and editing the material.
