Yidi Lu Bursary

In my final year as an Architecture PhD Candidate, Wolfson College kindly offered me a Yidi Lu Bursary which has enabled me to focus on completing my thesis. I am truly humbled by the generous support of Wolfson and how the College has and continues to help the students in need. Words cannot express my sincere appreciation for its generosity and kindness.

Wolfson Vice-Chancellor’s Award

I am fascinated by bones and the information they hold about past lives. For my PhD research, I calculate the evolutionary capacity of bones with the aim to understand better how our human lineage could diverge, and why human bones difer so much from our fellow primates. I am immensely grateful to have been awarded this scholarship, as without it I would not have been able to pursue my passion and undertake research at PhD level. Thank you.

Wolfson Award

I started my studies at Wolfson in 2014 and thanks to this generous grant, I have been able to successfully complete them, graduating with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Chemical Engineering. Coming from St. Lucia, a small island in the Caribbean, I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Wolfson. Next I will be spending two years in a graduate science and technology role with Novartis.

City Bursary

Before arriving at Wolfson, I was uncertain whether or not I could afford to accept my offer to study for an MPhil in Early Modern History – and even began looking at jobs in the event I could not cover my expenses! Thankfully, Wolfson lifted the financial pressures with the offer of a City Bursary. The bursary allowed me to pursue exciting new research on early modern reproduction, and I remain grateful for the life-changing opportunity Wolfson has given me.
