This year we are pleased to announce the highest number of arts scholarships to date at University of Bath, awarding 18 talented students thanks to our generous donors.
Eloise Tong, Arts Development Manager at the University was impressed by the standard of the eighteen students, ‘2018-19 sees the most diverse range of arts scholars since the University of Bath arts scholarship programme began with students who excel in music, theatre, dance and visual arts. I have been blown away by their exceptional talent, determination to succeed, and motivation.’
Each scholar will also showcase their hard work in this year’s Platform event in March, an annual showcase celebrating our scholars’ talents and championing the arts.
Now in its fourth year, the scholarships programme helps fulfil student’s creative potential alongside their academic studies. The programme provides opportunities and support for students to develop their skills, collaborate across art forms and work with arts professionals to further their expertise.
We would like to thank Santander, Nick Berry, Elly Williams, Grace McQuaid, Dorothy Walters-Godfree, and Margaret Dewey for their generous contributions to the arts scholarship programme.
