Queen’s University’s Pathway Opportunity Programme, which offers guidance and support to encourage progression to University, has received a welcome boost from Antrim-based Kilwaughter Minerals Ltd, one of Northern Ireland’s leading manufacturers.
"Queen's is delighted to partner with Kilwaughter Minerals Ltd on this five-year access initiative that will open doors for so many able local pupils.
"The funding generously provided by Kilwaughter will allow us to offer individual students who gain admission to the University through the Programme a £1,000 bursary to help them fund their first year of studies.
"With the backing of companies like Kilwaughter Minerals Ltd, the prospect of a brighter future through education can now be offered to those who might not otherwise have considered third level education. Philanthropy such as that demonstrated by Kilwaughter makes a real and very positive difference to the lives of our students and, ultimately, to the economy of Northern Ireland."
