A fair wind for Charlotte

A Canterbury student has become the fourth undergraduate to receive funding from London Array’s University Bursary Scheme.


Charlotte Dobson, 18, was chosen as this year’s recipient of the award after coming through a rigorous selection process.

The former Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School pupil will receive £3,000 a year towards her tuition fees for three years and be given the chance to gain invaluable work experience at London Array.

Charlotte, who comes from Bridge and is studying Geography at Bristol University, said: “This bursary allows me to pursue my interest in sustainable development.

“I think sustainable development is really important when considering the future of our planet, through local issues such as land use planning, national issues like the use of sustainable energies and global issues like the Kyoto Protocol.

“Without considering sustainability in our development we would be neglecting future generations. It should become more of an issue, discussed more often and implemented whenever possible.”

Mike O’Hare, General Manager at London Array, said: “We are delighted to name Charlotte as our third bursary student, providing her with a substantial amount of funding and work experience at London Array.

“We were very impressed with Charlotte’s commitment to sustainability and energy security and wish her all the best in her further studies.”

The London Array University Bursary Scheme was launched in 2010 as part of our commitment to supporting the local community. Every year for 10 years, we will award a three-year bursary to a successful applicant.

The scheme is run in partnership with Kent County Council.
