Developing Solutions/Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust Scholars at Nottingham
Here is what one of our 2015 Developing Solutions/Allan & Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust Scholars says about their scholarship:
"Besides providing me monetary security to study hassle-free at UoN, the scholarship has amplified my sense of responsibility and dedication. India ranks high in stress and depression. I want to promote the idea of positive mental health in the workplace... my course seems just the right choice... Nottingham is well-connected to other cities in the UK and provides diversity in terms of culture – my greatest takeaway as an international student."
