Isla Whateley - new General Council Prince Philip Scholar

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!"
