There were fifteen applications from students this year which, perhaps, is an indication of the current financial climate. Having discarded applications which were requesting funding for full international meetings, Committee members were still left with the difficult task of selecting two bursary recipients.
The first award was to Lewis Bush (£500), a second year History student, who proposed a photographic project which involved taking a series of images of Warwick students with artistic backgrounds, each photographed in a context reflecting their particular interest. It was felt that historically such a portfolio could prove to be valuable. The second award was given to Harriet Birchall (£300), a second year Renaissance History student, with 'a talent and a passion for singing.' The award will enable Harriet to have additional singing lessons.
The bursary awards were presented to the students during the early evening on Monday 24 November in the National Grid Room of the Arts Centre.
