Projects fund­ing

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - LOCAL NEWS -

Re­search into so­lar chim­neys and a latenight phone helpline are among the lat­est projects to be gifted money by Robert Gor­don Univer­sity alumni.

The RGU Foun­da­tion launched in 2015 and has sub­se­quently sup­ported 22 de­vel­op­ments which would not oth­er­wise re­ceive any fund­ing.

Ben­e­fi­cia­ries this year in­clude a staff mem­ber re­search­ing the ef­fi­ciency of gen­er­at­ing elec­tric­ity from so­lar chim­neys, a men­tal well­be­ing con­fer­ence, a stu­dent-led Duke of Ed­in­burgh Award scheme and Night­line – an anony­mous tele­phone ser­vice al­low­ing stu­dents to air their problems.
