Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

STU­DENTS from low in­come house­holds are be­ing given a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to get sup­port through univer­sity.

The Lloyds Schol­ars pro­gramme is a unique so­cial mo­bil­ity pro­gramme from Lloyds Bank­ing Group and of­fers a com­plete pack­age of fi­nan­cial sup­port, paid in­tern­ships and a business men­tor for stu­dents from lower in­come house­holds.

David Orm­rod Mor­ley, from Mac­cles­field, is study­ing chem­istry at the Univer­sity of Ox­ford as part of the pro­gramme and is hop­ing to see more lo­cal stu­dents ap­ply to fol­low in their foot­steps this year. The pro­gramme is for un­der­grad­u­ates whose house­hold in­come is less than £25,000, who in re­turn, must vol­un­teer for at least 100 hours per year while par­tic­i­pat­ing on the pro­gramme.

Paul O’Neill, head of Lloyds Schol­ars pro­gramme, said: “We are de­lighted that David is part of the Lloyds Schol­ars pro­gramme. We would love to see more promis­ing stu­dents from Mac­cles­field ap­ply this year, and help con­trib­ute to Lloyds Bank­ing Group’s aim to Help Bri­tain Pros­per.”

To be el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply, stu­dents must have ac­cepted their place at one of the uni­ver­si­ties tak­ing part in the pro­gramme.
