2019 Undergraduate Bursary
Two bursaries awarded
Maisey Woodisse and Timothy Young have been named as the recipients of our Undergraduate Bursaries.
Applicants were assessed by a Judging Panel, led by CHSA Vice President and Treasurer David Garcia, according to need, worthiness, endeavour, and overall performance.
Going to the University of Birmingham to study Criminology, Maisey, whose mother is co-owner of Woodridge Cleaning Supplies, is fascinated by the punishment and rehabilitation process and the impact of crime on local communities. She intends to use the bursary for books and to help pay for accommodation and living expenses. Tim, whose mother works at Greyland, is going to study Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. He impressed the panel with his passion for the subject. He participated and succeeded at the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Chemistry Olympiad and Cambridge University Chemistry Challenge. He also volunteers with a local rocket manufacturer, with which he visits local school to inspire young people. With a timetable that makes getting a job challenging, Tim will use the bursary to fund his living expenses.
Tim and Maisey join the CHSA’s current bursary recipients – 2018’s recipients Krupa Solanki and Ellie Walker, 2017’s recipients Lauren Moss, Chloe Hamilton and Lewis Baron. They will receive the first of three installments of £1,500 each in September. The second and third payments will be made at the start of their second and third years of their degrees.
