Trip of dreams in store for Julia and Ryan

Julia Sherriffs and Ryan ( Levi ) Kaye are preparing for the trip of a lifetime after each being awarded a George Lauder Bursary to study in the USA this summer .
“ I wanted a new adventure in my life so when I saw the opportunity to apply for the George Lauder Bursary I thought it was something I absolutely had to go for .”
The two former students , who have both studied at Fife College in the last year , were thrilled to have been chosen from dozens of entries to benefit from the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which will give them a head start in their future studies and career .
This year ’ s scholarship award was given a special seal of approval from the Great-Great- Grandson of George Lauder , William Garner at the College . William and his family , who live in Virginia and also Washington DC , have visited the College on several occasions in the past .
William was delighted to recently have lunch with the students and hear all about their plans as they prepare to travel to the USA this summer to study subjects relating to their courses .
“ Winning this scholarship is incredibly life-changing for me . It still hasn ’ t really settled in that this is actually happening , it ’ s an amazing feeling .”
They were also joined by former bursary recipients , Niamh Hogwood and Abby Cloete , who shared their experiences from their life-changing trips to the USA last summer .
William said : “ I am delighted that my trip to Scotland has coincided with the George Lauder Bursary award .
