SCHOLARSHIP UPDATE

Another record-breaking year for our scholarship programme !

Despite the ongoing challenges of the coronavirus pandemic , it ’ s been another bumper year for our scholarship programme with more students being awarded than ever before .
Thanks to the continued support from our donors , and a range of new scholarship funds , we were delighted to award 303 students which is 45 % more than last year ’ s record amount .
We are thrilled that our Adam Smith Scholarships , part of Fife College , are providing vital funds and opportunities to a record number of students , just at the time when they need it most .
We hope you enjoy looking back at our highlights from the last 5 months in this Scholarship Update .
It means a lot to receive a scholarship , sometimes it can be hard to believe in yourself and what you ’ re working towards but knowing that other people believe in you too and think that you ’ re doing a good job is a really nice feeling .
