Goldsmiths awards £1.5m in scholarships and bursaries for students

Goldsmiths has announced more than £1.5m in bursaries and scholarships for its students - including 10 for people from Lewisham.

The New Cross university will use the money to support more than 200 students with tuition fees and living cosots.

Among the bursaries are full fee waivers for ten students living in Lewisham and The Mayor's Award, set up by Lewisham Council in memory of those who died in 1981's New Cross fire.

Warden of Goldsmiths Patrick Loughrey said: "Many students may not be able to come to university without the funding we are honouring this evening. These awards exist thanks to gifts from others made generously and repeatedly over the years."

Sandra Ruddock lost her husband Paul and sister in law Yvonne in the New Cross fire. She attended this month's ceremony to meet the recipients of last year’s award.

She said: "There were many children who died in the fire who never got the chance to go to university. It gives children from underprivileged backgrounds that wish."

Grow up. This article is about scholarships. So you're against education now are you? Maybe you don't like education because you want everyone to share your limited levels of intelligence?

So as per, under privileged white kids will struggle to obtain any kind of e entitlement to these offers if reading the above is anything to go by. Just typical of Lewisham Borough.
Also isn't it about time the 1981 fire tragedy was put to rest. What about all the other fires where innocent people have perished, nobody has set up Trust funds in their names have they?

What!, we all need to grow up. Education is nothing more than learning how evil works. If you believe that a title in society is something to proud of then be my guest, for me it's nothing more than slavery.
The system needs people to keep it running. Look at the information about who is running government, PAEDOPHILES! the BBC, paedophiles, all working for a fiat money, money that doesn't and will never exist.
