Bursary success

9 August 2018

Three students awarded Rees Jeffreys Bursaries to pursue postgraduate studies at the School of Geography and Planning.

Elliot Carty, Duncan Lawrence and Victoria Ryan, who graduated from their undergraduate programmes last week (16 July), have received an award of £10,000 each to study MSc Transport and Planning in the 2018/19 academic year.

The Rees Jeffreys Road Fund, which finances the bursaries, exists to support education and research on transport and highways at UK universities. It does this primarily by providing bursaries for UK residents studying full time for a taught Master's degree programmes.

This year, nine bursaries were awarded with the monies made available to cover the costs of academic fees and living expenses during the year of study.

Dr Dimitris Potoglou, programme director for the MSc Transport and Planning at the School of Geography and Planning, said: “I’d like to congratulate Elliot, Duncan and Victoria on their successful applications for the Rees Jeffreys bursaries. It’s wonderful to see that a third of the available bursaries have been awarded to students from the School, recognising both their talent and their enthusiasm for transport and planning research.”

Applications for Rees Jeffreys Bursaries are initiated and facilitated through the School. Please contact Dr Dimitris Potoglou for further information about the bursaries and the MSc Transport and Planning programme.
