University Bursary awarded for 2010/11

The London Array University Bursary for the academic year 2010/2011 has been awarded to Benjamin Wigmore from Graveney. Benjamin attended Barton Court Grammar School in Canterbury and has won a place at Southampton University to study Mechanical Engineering, starting this autumn. The selection and interview panel, which consisted of representatives from London Array and Kent County Council and a local resident, were unanimous in their decision to award the Bursary to Benjamin.

Benjamin told us: ‘I’m delighted to be the first person to receive the London Array University Bursary. I feel privileged that this bursary will help me cover my tuition fees for three years, and I can’t wait to begin my course. I’m planning to work hard to gain the skills I need to get my engineering career off to a good start.’

About the Bursary Scheme
The Bursary will be awarded every year for 10 years and will help pay three years of tuition fees for a local student studying science, engineering or sustainable development. The 2010/2011 Bursary is the first of the 10 years. We’ll continue to promote the Bursary Scheme through local schools and those in the Canterbury area, and through the London Array newsletter which is circulated to all households in the Graveney area.
