Vice-Chancellor hosts reception for bursary recipients

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Bob Boucher, hosted a pre-Christmas drinks reception for students who have received bursaries from the Alumni Foundation.

The event brought together students and members of the Alumni Foundation Committee, which administers Alumni Foundation bursaries and other named bursaries in conjunction with the Student Services Department and the Development and Alumni Relations Office. These bursaries have been made possible thanks to the generosity of alumni, staff and friends of the University.

The first Alumni Foundation bursaries were given out three years ago, and since then over 40 students have received a bursary to support them in their studies or research at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The students received certificates from the Vice-Chancellor to commemorate the occasion.
