I was delighted to visit campus recently to award this year’s Sir Bob Murray scholarships to five very deserving first year Leeds Beckett students who are just starting their studies.
After I became Chancellor of Leeds Beckett University in 2013, I pledged to give £30,000 to students over six years to help those that need a bit of extra support to achieve their goals.
This year, Billy Haigh, Louise Wade, Saeed Muthana, Jugraj Singh Bhadal and Jamie Howarth received the scholarship award to help support their studies.
Congratulations to them all!
It is very rewarding for me to be able to give something back to my university by supporting these hard working, talented students.
I hope the scholarships will make a real difference to them and I wish them every success in their studies.
