Celebrating our brightest King's Foundation students
Earlier in the year, King’s English foundations launched two scholarships for King’s International Foundation students:
- King’s Scholars of Tomorrow, offered to students before they started at King’s in September 2017
- King’s Future Leaders, offered to King's Foundation students who were in the 2016-17 cohort and have progressed to undergraduate study at King’s in September 2017.
We celebrated the Foundation scholarship recipients who received these inaugural scholarships in November.
Altogether, 45 scholarships were awarded. As part of their scholarship prize, students were treated to an afternoon tea event with the Principal of King’s College London, Professor Edward Byrne, as well as £1,000 towards their tuition fees.
Together with Professor Byrne, the Director of King’s Foundations, Nina McDermott, and King’s International Foundation course leads: Dr Nick Pearce, King’s International Foundation Course Convenor, Saul Jones and Sora Zushi, King’s International Foundation Course Coordinators, honoured our best and brightest International Foundation students.
Dr Nick Pearce said: “These scholarships are a fantastic opportunity to support and recognise our best International Foundation students. I was pleased to meet students from last year and see how excited they were about receiving the scholarship and starting their undergraduate degrees at King’s.”
