Gloucestershire students awarded top scholarships
Six Gloucestershire students have been awarded Academic Achievement Scholarships by the University of Worcester after achieving top grades in their assignments.
The £1,000 scholarship is awarded to students at the University with outstanding academic achievements. A record 98 students were this year awarded the scholarship, which were presented at an award ceremony presided over by University Vice Chancellor, Professor David Green.
Among the Gloucestershire scholars were 21-year-old Sara-Jayne Boughton, from Kingsholm Road, Gloucester, 23-year-old Tim Montague, from Stonehouse, and 26-year-old Holly Khraibani, from Tewkesbury.
Sara-Jayne, a second year Archaeology and Heritage Studies with English Literary Studies student, said: "Not all universities put in the time, appreciation and support that I have experienced at the University of Worcester and its lecturers, and this scholarship has given me more motivation to carry on achieving the best grades possible in my second year."

For Tim, a third year Drama & Performance student, it was the second time he had received a scholarship, having achieved top grades in both his first and second years.
"When I received the award last year it was a complete surprise because I had no idea it existed. So upon beginning my second year I had even more incentive to work harder. My time at the University of Worcester has been, and still is, amazing."
Holly, a second year Illustration student, added: "Coming to university as a mature student, I have personally felt the need to push myself hard and squeeze as much as I can out of having the opportunity to return to education. So having my work and dedication towards my degree rewarded with this scholarship is truly inspiring and gratifying."
Other Gloucestershire students receiving the award included Gemma Collins, from Wotton-under-Edge, David Lewis, from Gloucester, and Carolyn Webb, from Longlevens, Gloucester.
Professor Green said: "I am delighted that so many of our students have been awarded scholarships this year. It is testament to their hard work and commitment to their studies.
"This year we also had a number of students who picked up scholarships for the second year running, which is a superb achievement. I'm also delighted confirm that the scholarships scheme will continue to run for new students who join the University in 2012/13 and beyond."
