Recipients of the University’s new Excellence Scholarships have attended a special reception, where they learned more about the philanthropic support which made their scholarships possible.
At the event, which was hosted by the Philanthropy and Alumni Relations team, the students were also invited to share their experiences of Liverpool so far, as well as their hopes and plans for the future.
Karen Brady, Director of Philanthropy and Alumni Relations, said: “It was wonderful to meet so many scholarship students at the event, and we will be in close contact with them throughout their time at Liverpool.
“These scholarships wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of our donors, many of whom are University of Liverpool alumni. Thanks to our donors, we have been able to support 386 undergraduate students this academic year across all areas of study.”
The Faculty of Health and Life Sciences received 42% of these scholars; the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, 38%, and the Faculty of Science and Engineering 20%.
