The bursary is established in the memory of Bridget Sarah Hurson, late mother of Dr Tess Maginess, and Ms Edna Gibson. Two bursaries, valued at £200 each, will be awarded this academic year. One will be awarded to a student facing financial hardship who wishes to enrol in any Open Learning course. The other bursary will be used to subvent the cost of any Open Learning course of particular merit which would not otherwise run, as agreed by the family and the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work.

Individual applicants should make a written submission of no more than 300 words detailing how the award would enable them to participate in an Open Learning Programme. The closing date of applications is Friday 2 September 2016. The award will be made in two instalments. A sum equal to the amount of the fees payable will be paid at the beginning of the course; the balance will be paid at the end of the course and will be dependent on the recipient attending 70% of classes.

Applications should be sent to:

Open Learning Office,
School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work,
Queen’s University,
20 College Green,

Applications will be considered by a panel drawn from the School and the family.
