The Development Office is delighted to announce the winners of our donor-supported scholarships for the 2015/16 academic year!
These awards are funded by UEA alumni, friends of the University, and Trusts and organisations. The Scholarships contribute towards tuition fees or other university expenses, providing support to students throughout their degree course at UEA.
Our thanks go to our individual donors, whose generosity ensures that bright young minds are able to attend university or to continue in their higher education studies, and to alumni and friends of the University who have chosen to make a one-off or regular donation to Scholarships within The Difference Campaign since 2009. The Difference Scholarships were awarded to 8 students from low-income backgrounds who would otherwise not have had the means either to come to university for the first time, or to continue in their studies by undertaking a postgraduate course.
Our annual Scholarships Reception will take place on Friday 4 March 2016, 5:30 pm to 8:30pm at the Thomas Paine Lecture Theatre and will be followed by a drinks reception in the Modern Life Café in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. The reception provides an opportunity for Scholarship donors and recipients along with their guests to meet one another, and for the recipients to thank their donors for their generous support.
