The first General Council Prince Philip Scholar was Gordon Clark, who graduated in the summer of 2014 with an MA in Ancient History, having changed tack slightly along the way, well done Gordon!
When asked how receipt of this bursary had affected him he said:
“When I applied to do Archaeology it was something that I was really interested in doing and without a bursary I don’t think I would be able to do it. I can enjoy what I am doing. It has given me more time to concentrate on my studies, it’s taken some of the pressure off me to allow me to enjoy university life. It could definitely help other people to go to university and to take up their place.”
