Exciting LU Arts Scholarships for two AAE students

Two students from the Department of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering have been selected to receive 2020/21 LU Arts Scholarships.

Nic Holmes, fifth year MEng Automotive Engineering student, and Emily Jane McDonald, who is a fifth year Aeronautical Engineering student, are two of nine students chosen from across the university to receive this exciting scholarship.

The 2020/21 scholarship winners have been appointed based on their ability in their chosen art form and their passion and commitment to it. They come from a variety of subject areas and backgrounds and include undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The scholars' art forms cover music (instrumental), singing, creative writing, performing arts (dance and musical theatre) and documentary photography.

In addition to a cash prize, each Nic and Emily will receive a tailored package of free tuition or mentoring in order to develop their talents further. They will also take part in a showcase event later in the year and they will be encouraged to contribute to the creative life of the campus by organising their own arts events or projects.
