The generosity of corporate scholarship donors recognised at annual event.
The University of Aberdeen Development Trust’s annual Scholars’ Reception was held in the Sir Duncan Rice Library on Tuesday, 13th March and was attended by more than 60 scholars, as well as donors and University staff.
Over 200 scholarships are awarded each year at the University and this event enables students and donors to meet and network, often for the first time.
Vice Principal for Digital Transformation, Professor Phil Hannaford, welcomed everybody and introduced the event’s speakers. Kathryn Neale, HR Business Partner at Nexen, spoke about Nexen’s investment in scholarships while 4th year engineering student Sean Clark spoke passionately about the importance and impact of his Repsol Sinopec scholarship which benefits both him personally and his studies.
