Former student initiates bursary scheme to help Postgraduates

Sue Wilson, PhD

Sue Wilson returned to education as a mature student and graduated from the University of Southampton with a PhD in English.
While undertaking her studies, Sue was able to see firsthand the financial challenges that some students experience as postgraduates.
On completion of her PhD, Sue decided that she would donate money to Southampton to provide scholarships for postgraduate students: 
‘I like to feel I’m giving these students the chance to achieve higher qualifications that they might not have been able to afford otherwise’.
