The Antonian E-newsletter

March 2018

Dear Antonians,
Welcome to this, the e-newsletter for March 2018. Here you will find the latest news from the College, alumni updates, and upcoming events.

We are also bringing you news of our ongoing Telethon campaign. The Telethon is to raise funds for our Antonian Fund - a fund which is exclusively funded by alumni and members like yourself. We also include a list of awardees from Hilary Term. 

We would always appreciate feedback on this e-newsletter, or further updates which we would be happy to share and celebrate on our social media, or include in future bulletins. 

In this issue:
Best wishes from Woodstock Road,
Martyn Rush
Communications co-ordinator (and MPhil Modern Middle Eastern Studies, '15)

Spring Telethon - an ongoing success

We are very excited to be running our annual Spring Telephone Campaign until 25th March.  We will be calling alumni all over the world to update them on the College’s news, hear about what they’ve been doing since they left College, and to talk to them about our current fundraising priorities.  We have a really keen team of student callers who are looking forward to speaking to as many of their predecessors as possible. 

This year we’re focusing on raising funds to support The Antonian Fund, The Malcolm Deas Fund, and St Antony’s Boat Club.  The Antonian Fund is the main source of student support in College, offering assistance to students for all aspects of their lives, be it by funding travel and research grants (essential when our students are studying places across the globe), through the Warden’s Scholarship, or by fostering new initiatives in College. 

We’re really proud that our students, unlike so many of their peers in other Colleges, have a direct source of funding to help them during their time here.  The Antonian Fund is only possible through the support of our alumni and friends, so we are extremely grateful to you all!  If you would like to consider donating, you can do so by visiting this website

Please accept a huge thank you from me and of course from all our callers, Stephanie, Yassin, Kgaugelo, Charles-Alexis, Hannah, Juliana, Nadia, Linda, and Shuranjeet, for taking the time to speak to us during the campaign!  If you’d like to receive a call but haven’t yet done so, just drop a message to
