Scholarship Student, Ruby, Graduates with First Class Honours

Lords Feoffees scholarship recipient, Ruby Walker, has graduated from the University of Oxford with a first class honours degree in history.

“I would like to thank the Lords Feoffees for offering such a generous scholarship to students from Bridlington. The money that I received from the grant was put to use to purchase a laptop, books for my course, and to help with the general costs associated with moving to university. The scholarship was straightforward to apply for, and undoubtedly made the transition from school student to undergraduate that bit easier. Altogether a great opportunity for hardworking students; I would thoroughly recommend applying.” Ruby Walker, August 2019

The Lords Feoffees are proud to help many hardworking Bridlington students, like Ruby, reach their academic potential.  Shortlisting for the 2019 scholarships is currently underway and applications for 2020 will open in the spring.  For more information regarding the Lords Feoffees scholarship click here.

Art student Amanda Harvey, pictured, (with deputy mayor, Cllr Jackie Foster, Principal Mike Welsh & tutor Joy Verda) was exhibiting one of many standout pieces as part of the final year of her level 3 art course and hopes to progress to a HNC in September.

Mandy is a student at East Riding College and has just achieved DD*D* on an Art & Design Extended Diploma Course.

My final major piece of work was the dress, which took 170 hours to complete in total.  It was a huge amount of work.  It is looking at art history from old to new, is made of an old, water-damaged book and is even wearable!  I wanted to highlight the relevance of art history to young people and designers/artists today.”

East Riding College student awarded Lords Feoffees Scholarship

East Riding College student Jasmine McCann has been awarded a scholarship from the Lords Feoffees of Bridlington.

Jasmine, aged 19 from Bridlington won a place at the Manchester Fashion Institute, part of Manchester Metropolitan University to study Fashion Promotion after completing her BTEC Diploma in Fashion at East Riding College in July.  Jasmine, who will start her degree in September, was one of many who applied for scholarship funds and underwent a formal interview process to win the grant.

The Lords Feoffees have awarded scholarship grants to students from Bridlington for decades, giving hundreds of promising individuals support with their university studies.  The grant of £1,200 for three years is to assist with the costs of studying.

Jasmine said, “Because on the course I’m doing I’ll be using specialist software like Photoshop, so I want to use the scholarship money initially to buy a Mac book computer so I have the equipment I need to work on my designs.  It will really help, I can’t wait to start my course and I’ll be keeping the Lords Feoffees updated as to how I’m getting on.”

Jasmine, who lives with her proud Nan, Margaret Fenton (pictured with Jasmine) excelled on her college course, producing a fashion magazine as part of her final project.

Course tutor Beth Jacob said, “I’m so pleased Jazz has been awarded this scholarship to support her with her university studies.  She worked hard during her time at the College and was one of my most driven and enthusiastic students.  She’s really creative and made the most of her opportunities with us, and I am sure she will do the same at university.  The Institute is one of the best places to study a specialist course and has a great progression rate into the industry, I’m sure the Lords Feoffees have invested in a future star.”
