St Martin's Challenge

St Martin’s Scholarships and Bursaries

 

We were delighted to launch our inaugural £5,000 Student Scholarship in 2020. The aim of the Scholarship is to support a deserving student who requires financial assistance with university fees or related expenses.

2020 Student Scholarhip Recipient: Amaka Dominic-Odeagbaja

"I am so delighted to have been thought deserving of the St Martin's Scholarship. I appreciate greatly the extent to which it will allow me to invest in my future financial and professional success that would not have been possible without it. I extend this gratitude to Dr Lewis Owens who set up the St Martin's Awards and the committee who have monitored a programme that gives people like myself a once in a lifetime opportunity such as this".
