The freedom the (Lord Crewe) Bursary has given me has allowed me to really enjoy my university experience and not feel like I’m missing out because of my financial circumstances.
I chose to study at Lincoln because of the reputation it had as a friendly community, and I’m very glad I did! I am a final year PPEist and I have really enjoyed my time here. From the facilities to the food, not to mention the excellent tutors, I have found Lincoln to be the perfect place for me, and it really feels like being part of a family!
I have also found the support at Lincoln to be invaluable; I was the recipient of a Lord Crewe Bursary last year, which was incredibly beneficial. It allowed me to really be a part of College life without having to worry about finances. I could join sports clubs without worrying about how I was going to afford the kit, and it ensured I could be sociable when group activities like mid-term bops were organised. The freedom the (Lord Crewe) Bursary has given me has allowed me to really enjoy my university experience and not feel like I’m missing out because of my financial circumstances.
I chose to study PPE because I honestly couldn’t choose between humanities and social science, I wanted a course that afforded me a wide range of study and PPE certainly does that!
In my second year I was selected as co-President of the recently founded Lincoln Politics Society; we co-ordinated termly events for undergraduate members of the College, including Alumni lectures, political debates and even a US election party. We received financial assistance from the College without which we would not have been able to run these events. Being President of the Society has been incredibly rewarding and the events have been fun and informative for the whole JCR.
The financial support I have received from the College has allowed me to enjoy Lincoln life to the fullest extent, and I am incredibly grateful to be able to study and live at such a fantastic place.
