New scholarships worth £20,000 will help support the academic aspirations of students starting university this autumn. Four new Vice Chancellor’s Scholarships, each worth £5,000, have been designed for students joining the University of Lincoln, UK, to help cover living costs as they continue their education at degree level.
For budding scientists, the Boole Scholarship will be awarded to a new undergraduate student on the University’s BSc (Hons) Computer Science degree, and the Banks Scholarship to a new student studying either Biology or Zoology. Two Stuart Scholarships will help to facilitate access to higher education for mature students.
One will be awarded to a student aged 21 or over studying either English or History at Lincoln, while the final award will go to a mature student joining one of the University’s Psychology or Law degree courses. All the new scholarships have been supported through a donation by the University of Lincoln’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Mary Stuart CBE.
She said: “At the University of Lincoln, we believe the future is what you make it and that higher education should be affordable to all. “Recent events have prompted many of us to re-evaluate our lives and, in particular, our careers, and no one should have to put their ambitions on hold during this challenging time.
“A university education can open doors that lead to incredible new opportunities. We encourage our students to broaden their horizons, develop new interests and to meet people from around the world and from all walks of life.
“We look forward to seeing the recipients of these awards go on to achieve academic excellence in their degree studies and serve as ambassadors and role models for their chosen subjects.”
