A helping hand for university hopefuls
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.
