T Supporters celebrate student scholarship and award winners he beautiful Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh was the perfect location to host a celebration of student successes in November. Over 30 QMU students were joined by the University’s staff and supporters at a very special event which showcased the scholarship and award winners of 2015/16. This included students who were supported by individual donors and organisations including Santander Universities, Alzheimer Scotland, Dakota Hotels, Ryder Cup bursary scheme, as well as by the University’s Vice-Chancellor’s Fund, Student Development Fund and Princess Alice Award. The award-winning students were joined by the University’s Chancellor Designate, Prue Leith CBE, as well as the companies and individuals whose generous support has helped boost their academic experience, personal development and made special student projects possible. Dr Richard Butt, QMU’s Deputy Principal, said: “The University is grateful for the continued support of organisations, individuals and QMU graduates, which greatly enhances the experience of those students who receive scholarships and awards. “Awards and scholarships like this enrich students’ academic experience, build their confidence, broaden their horizons and allow them make a real contribution to their field or to serving society’s needs.” If you would like to find out more about opportunities to give to QMU, please see our website or email Heather Edie, Development and Alumni Manager E: hedie@qmu.ac.uk ❒ “Awards and scholarships like this enrich students’ academic experience, build their confidence, broaden their horizons and allow them make a real contribution to their field or to serving society’s needs.” QMYOU / Development & Alumni News 21
