Cash boost for brightest students

For immediate use
7 November 2001

Kents brightest students could benefit from a new scholarship scheme at Imperial Colleges Wye campus.

The College is offering up to 10 scholarships, worth £1,500 each, to students starting degrees at its campus near Ashford in October 2002.

The scholarships will be awarded to students based on their performance in A2 and AS level examinations.

Shortlisted students will be invited for interview and results will be announced on 31 March, 2002.

Admissions Tutor, Nigel Williams, who will supervise the award of the new scholarships, commented:

We realise that finding funds for university education is a problem for many. We hope that this financial incentive will encourage the brightest students to come to Imperial College, Wye and benefit from our excellent teaching and learning facilities.
