£5000 development scholarships now open

Undergraduates seeking to further their personal and professional development are invited to apply for two generous scholarship opportunities.

Applications are now open for the two £5,000 scholarships which aim to provide an undergraduate with the opportunity to undertake personal and professional activities which will enhance their leadership skills and personal development.

The William James Kelbrick scholarship is open to first and second year undergraduate students in the University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS).

Last year’s recipient, Abdul Sharif (picture above) spent eight weeks with 13 other volunteers in rural Tanzania and two weeks in surrounding cities.

Abdul said “The aim of the volunteering project was to promote health and hygiene by educating the local community and identifying ways in which they can prevent diseases such as diarrhoea and cholera.

“We took part in so many different activities including helping to build toilets for a local school, teaching children about health and hygiene using songs and dance routines and we set up a boys and girls youth committee. It was the most rewarding and exciting project I have undertaken.”

The William Morgan Personal Development Scholarship is open to first and second year MEng Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering students who can demonstrate good academic progress.

The inaugural recipient of the scholarship, Alex Darvill (MEng 2012), talks about the impact that the scholarship had on in this video:
