UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
Students from City of Wolverhampton College are on the path to success after being awarded scholarships to help them progress to degree courses at a local university.
Sixteen students have each been awarded progression scholarships by the University of Wolverhampton after making significant progress in their college course and demonstrating the potential and ability to succeed on an undergraduate course.
They will each receive £2000 from the university during their first year to help towards their living costs after successfully completing a range of college courses including Access to HE, Media, Business and Science.
Ian Hart, Head of Access and Outreach at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “The university is delighted to offer these scholarships to students who have been nominated by the college for their high level of motivation and commitment to their studies. The first year at university is a period when additional funding will be particularly helpful.”
The awards are just a few of the scholarships being offered by the university – with the rest announced once students receive their exam results in August.
Claire Boliver, Principal of the College, said: “We are delighted that so many of our students have been offered these scholarships, which is tribute to all the hard work they have put in over the last year. This financial support will go a long way in making their time at university both productive and enjoyable, and we are very thankful to the University of Wolverhampton for supporting students in this way.”
