Ardrishaig student thanks Allt Dearg
A STUDENT from Ardrishaig has thanked the Allt Dearg Educational Trust for providing her with a grant.
Kathryn Merrilees, who studied BSc Biochemistry and Pharmacology at the University of Strathclyde, has said the grant helped relieve her of financial pressure while away from home.
The student, who graduated in June, said: ‘The money I was awarded has helped alleviate some of the financial burden associated with studying at university while living away from home.
‘The grant has helped me buy my textbooks and other university essentials and a bus ticket to visit home every now and again.’
Kathryn is now studying a masters degree in Industrial Biotechnology at Strathclyde and is hoping to enter full-time employment next year following five years in higher education.
She continued: ‘I hope to seek a fulltime job once graduating next year using the knowledge I will have acquired over the five years at university.
‘I am so thankful to the Allt Dearg trust for everything they have helped me with.’
