Four Business School students have been awarded University Endowed Prizes at this year's celebration evening
Each summer staff from every school are asked to nominate 5-7 of their highest performing Stage 1 students from that academic year. These nominations are collated and then presented to the Endowed Prizes Committee, who choose winners for each award from the nominated students. This year there were 32 Endowed Prizes valued at £400 each and 8 Dennison Scholarhips valued at £1000 each.
Economics student Sophie Thomas was joined by Accounting and Finance student Jacques Hall in being awarded 2 of the 8 Stanley Dennison Scholarship awards. Accounting and Finance student Sari Magar and Marketing and Management student Rebecca Garrity were both successful in winning a University Endowed Prize.
The Stanley Dennison Scholarships were established in 1992 from legacy funds donated from the estate of Professor Stanley Dennison C.B.E. - a notable and eminent economist, former chief economic assistant in the war cabinet, holder of the David Dale chair of economics and Pro-Vice-Chancellor at Newcastle University and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hull. The Scholarships are devoted to assisting the further studies of the highest achieving first year undergraduates at Newcastle University.
The University Endowed Prizes are made up from individual donations or bequests from Thomas Penman, Frances Priestman, JR Sisling, Katherine Lloyd, Trevelyan, Douglas A Gilchrist, Alan Gilchrist, Thomas Hacking, JES Boden Memorial, Thomas Young Hall and John Whitehead Hall.
Congratulations to all our students who were awarded these prizes.
