Kilwaughter Minerals believes that background and socio-economic status should be no barrier to success or a higher-level education. That is why, since its inception in 2017, we have been a proud supporter of the Queen’s University ‘Pathway Opportunity Programme’ - a unique initiative which offers practical and financial support to talented individuals enabling each student to realise their potential.
Core to our business strategy is investment in our people and inherent in our approach to business is the belief that the community in which we operate should benefit from our presence.
Over 500 students who enroll through the Pathway Programme will benefit from our contributions. These bursaries not only provide a much-needed financial boost for students to ease the pressure of accommodation, travel, and study costs, but often act as a catalyst to unlock their confidence, self-belief, and aspirations for a better future.
As a responsible business leader, we champion diversity and inclusion in the workplace and provide equal opportunities for the workforce of tomorrow. That ethos aligns synonymously with the aims of this programme.
Many of the students at Queen’s today will go on to be leaders and innovators of tomorrow. From board level to ground operations, our team is proud to be involved with an initiative which delivers tangible results and delivers a long term impact.
The bursary was another huge push regarding how hard I was determined to work to get into University. It allowed me to consider alternative options concerning travelling or living in Belfast to be closer to QUB. The money from this bursary is going to be a great help assisting me in buying textbooks and relevant books for my course, as well as allowing me to feel less pressure and stress regarding handling finances on top of University work.
Overall, I am incredibly grateful for the addition of this bursary and owe a huge thank you to Kilwaughter Minerals for supporting Pathway students. Computer Science Pathway Student - 2017
