University Chancellor Skin awards three new scholarships

17 August 2021

The first year of Skin’s Chancellor Scholarships have been awarded to three students who will commence their undergraduate studies at Leeds Arts University in 2021/22.

These scholarships, developed with the University’s Chancellor Skin, aim to support the general living and maintenance costs of students during their time at university to enable them to progress through their studies.

The scholarships have been awarded to two home students: Jennifer Hind, a BA (Hons) Textile Design undergraduate and Sophie Paul, BA (Hons) Illustration student. One international scholarship was awarded to Samira Khatri, a BA (Hons) Illustration student from India.

The high quality of work submitted shows the passion and desire in these students to reach their full potential and I’m thrilled to be a part of the opportunity to help them to achieve this.”
