WMG hosts scholarship celebration event

Picture shows Dr Jane Marshall with WMG students at the Scholarship DinnerWMG at the University of Warwick was pleased to host its annual Scholarship Dinner celebration for full-time Master’s students last week.

This academic year, WMG has welcomed a total of 225 scholarship students from across 45 different countries. The event was a chance to celebrate the achievements of the students and give them an opportunity to network with staff and peers.

The WMG Excellence Scholarship - a competitive, merit-based scholarship through which WMG provides tuition fee discounts to particularly strong applicants - was awarded to 130 of the students.

A further 23 students received a Chevening Scholarship funded by the UK Government Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. Chevening Scholarships are widely considered one of the top scholarships for Master’s degrees, making them extremely prestigious and highly competitive.

The remaining 72 students received scholarships from partner sponsors from UK and international funding bodies including governments, charities, development funds, industry, and banks.

Professor Dan Nunan, Director of Full Time Postgraduate Programmes, who hosted the celebration event explained: “The annual scholarship dinner for MSc students was the biggest ever with nearly all of our 225 scholars attending.

“We are very grateful to the many external organisations who provide funding, sponsorship and other forms of financial support that enable students, who would not otherwise be able to study at Warwick, to attend. This year around £5m will be provided in scholarships and other support to students at WMG. Having this support is key in enabling WMG to continue to attract the best, and highest potential, students from all around the world.”

Cathy Fawcett, Student Recruitment and Marketing Manager at WMG, and organiser of this event commented: “It’s so gratifying bringing together all our scholars for a celebration like this. For so many, joining Warwick is the culmination of several years’ effort as the competition, particularly for awards like Chevening, is immense. A special thanks to the staff - course leaders, representatives and others who did a fantastic job of hosting tables and making this a really special occasion for our scholars.”
