The words of recent Scholars

Adam Jackson, now completing his second year in Chemical Engineering has bought books with his bursary and used it for day to day living expenses.  He said: “The bursary is extremely helpful. I can’t thank you enough!”

Lauren Moss was one of three successful applicants in 2017. Studying s BA in History at the University of London, Lauren used the bursary to cover living costs, enabling her to save for a trip to Europe to visit historic sites including Anne Frank’s house and the Brandenburg Gate.  She said: “Never did I imagine I’d get selected. The bursary has completely transformed my university experience and given me opportunities I would otherwise never have had.”
