Ursula Lockley Travel Bursary  
Students should apply directly for this award
A bursary to the value of 250 is awarded annually to assist a student or group of students to undertake activities to promote Anglo-German relations.

Canon Lockley was a local vicar for many years. When his wife died he wanted to establish a bursary to commemorate her and in particular to recognise their joint interests in Anglo-German relations.

Loughborough College of Education Commemorative Awards
Students should apply directly for these awards
Two annual awards to the value of 175 each are given to assist students in the Departments of Design and Technology, English and Drama, Geography and the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, to enable them to participate in extra-curricular educational activities.

The Amenities Fund of the former Loughborough College of Education was established for the benefit of students of that College. When the College amalgamated with the University it was resolved by the Amenities Committee to use the residual funds to establish a trust to commemorate the College by awarding annual prizes open to each of the Departments of the University which had previously been in the College of Education.

John Guest Phillips Memorial Travelling Scholarship
Students should apply directly for this award
Joint Winners 2003 - Sophie Dale, Department of Chemistry and Adrian Holland, Wolfson School
An annual travelling scholarship to the value of 1000 may be awarded to a registered full-time postgraduate research student. The purpose of the scholarship is to ensure that promising research students are given the opportunity to extend their knowledge of their subject, either within this country or overseas.

The John Guest Phillips Travelling Scholarship was established in memory of Loughborough University of Technology's fourth Vice-Chancellor, Professor J G Phillips, who died in office in 1987. Professor Phillips had a special concern for young research workers who showed promise, and the Scholarship has been set up to provide financial support for travel for postgraduate research students at the University, a project which we feel Professor Phillips would have fully supported. The Scholarship is being supported by the John Guest Phillips Memorial Fund, which was established by Professor Phillips' family with the University as the beneficiary.

Sir Robert Martin Prize
Students must be nominated for this award
A prize to the value of 400 plus a commemorative medal may be awarded annually to a student of outstanding all round achievement in the University, including academic achievement.

Four prizes, (one in Engineering, one in Science and two in Social Sciences and Humanities) to the value of 300 each, may be awarded annually to an outstanding student in the Faculty for both academic and non-academic achievement, but not to the Sir Robert Martin Prizewinner.

Robert Martin was a member of a distinguished and a very long-established Leicestershire family. He was educated at Eton and King's College, Cambridge, where he read Mechanical Engineering. After working as a railway engineer, he enlisted in the Leicestershire Regiment in the First World War. Eventually wounded and invalided out, he was awarded the Companionship of the Order of St Michael and St George (CMG) for wartime leadership and gallantry.

In 1924 he was elected Chairman of Leicestershire Council, a post he held until 1960. He was also Chairman of the County Education Committee and it was in this capacity that he made a major contribution to the development of Loughborough College, the predecessor to the University. Elected to its governing body in 1922 and its chairman from 1940 to 1960, he together with Sir William Brockington, the long-serving County Director of Education, and Dr Herbert Schofield, the college principal, formed 'the triumvirate' which fostered the remarkable growth of the college.

In 1939 he was knighted for his services to local government and education; in 1958 he attended the christening of Martin Hall, named after him, on the campus; and in 1959 he was awarded a Doctorate of Law by Leicester University. He died in 1961 at the age of 86.
