The University launched our Alumni Fund scholarship programme in 2011. Since then we have been able to offer over 40 scholarships of £1,000 to talented students from low-income backgrounds. The awards really help these students to have the best start possible in higher education, changing their lives for the better and opening new opportunities which may not otherwise have been possible.
Support targeted in this way has an impact for all of us - not only for the student receiving the award but because of the contribution they are then equipped to make in society as a result of being able to live their dreams.
