Congratulations to Isla, our second General Council Prince Philip Scholar. Isla is studying Geography and Social Anthropology, and met the Secretary of the General Council, Dr Mike Mitchell, at a recent welcome event for new bursary recipients. She said of the award:
"Receiving this bursary has been of massive help to me so far. It's meant that a lot of financial pressure has been taken off, and I don't have to find myself a job in order to finance my studies, which frees up time for me to settle into my course and my new life at University. Without the support from the bursary, I don't think I'd have been able to come to university! I am so grateful that I have received it - thank you!"
