"I am very grateful to have received an Alumni Undergraduate Scholarship after working so hard to get to University. It is a great feeling to know my hard work has paid off and that I have been rewarded for my efforts. Thank you to the former students and staff who funded this award by giving back to Manchester Metropolitan University."

Katie Wotawa, BSc (Hons) Educational Psychology, Alumni Undergraduate Scholar 2018/2019

"I would like to wholeheartedly thank the generosity of everyone that has contributed to the funding of my Scholarship. With this Scholarship, I have been able to purchase a new laptop and keep money aside for other living costs which greatly helps in my computing and design-based academic studies and keep up with my other responsibilities. I do feel this University has full confidence in me reaching my potential, and to give back, I will pursue significant roles in University in the near future."

Thank you so much to the donors and to Manchester Met, with your help, people like me are able to succeed without the burden of financial pressures! "

"I cannot put into words how grateful I am to have received an Alumni Undergraduate Scholarship.
