Scholarships have a significant impact on the daily lives of students, benefitting their studies and their whole university experience in so many ways – so much so that it very often makes the difference between someone being able to study and realise their dream or not.
One recent example of a family changing lives through their generosity is US-based, but Aberdeen-born, businessman Dave Cormack, his wife Fiona and their family gifting over £270,000 to the University to establish the Cormack Family Foundation Scholarship Programme. This is enabling talented and aspirational students from widening access backgrounds to realise their dreams by studying medicine or business courses at Aberdeen.
“It was a huge relief when I found out I had been chosen for the scholarship. This will allow me to study effectively without too much worrying about money. I’ll now be able to focus on my ambitions to work in acute medicine and come out of university with the best degree possible.” Sebastian Siegrist, 1st year medical student
