UCL Scholarships Reception

news editor22 December 2011

Dan Martin, UCL Corporate Events, writes about this year’s scholarships reception.

Every year UCL celebrates the achievements of its scholarship recipients at an annual scholarships reception, and on 15 December, President and Provost, Professor Malcolm Grant and Vice-Provost (International) Professor Michael Worton addressed a packed auditorium of 350 scholarship recipients, their guests, embassy officials, scholarship sponsors and UCL senior staff.

Beyond the significant investment that UCL makes in its various scholarships, it is clear from the many organisations and individual benefactors in the audience – who through their generosity help the university’s exceptional students to take forward their studies – that many share and support UCL’s vision of excellence and global citizenship. Scholarship sponsor John Howe, a trustee for the Frederick Bonnart-Braunthal Trust, which since 2000 has been funding three-year MPhil/PHD scholarships at UCL, addressed the audience on behalf of the sponsors in the room, speaking very positively of his support for UCL and the funding of scholarships.
