Athina also led the Gerontology team's successful application for 10 Commonwealth Scholarships in order to enable students from Commonwealth to study on the MSc Gerontology (Distance Learning) programme in 2012-13.

She comments, "I was delighted to receive this award, and it was very special to receive it during the graduation ceremony, in front of the students and their families, as well as my colleagues from the Centre for Research on Ageing."
