Michael Hogan, Chairman of the Foundation, said, "The Trustees of the Foundation are extremely pleased to be initiating these scholarships and bursaries at a time when university education is becoming more expensive for families. The scholarships are bringing to Ludlow College some truly outstanding young people who have already achieved academic excellence at school as well as demonstrating leadership potential. We wish them every success in their studies and look forward to them gaining places in their first choice universities.”
Ludlow College Principal, Jonathan Davis said, “We are extremely grateful to The Foundation for the support they have given to students wishing to enter into higher education. Scholarships and bursaries definitely help to take some of the financial pressure off students and allow them to concentrate more fully on their studies. “
Note to Editors
The Foundation has its origins in the early 15th Century when the Grammar School was administered by the Palmers Guild. The Guild was dissolved in 1551 when its estates and responsibilities passed to Ludlow Borough Corporation. In 1876 part of this inheritance went to the newly created Board of Governors who in 1966 amalgamated with Ludlow Girls’ High School and the co-educational school went on to become Ludlow Sixth Form College in 1977. The Trustees of the Foundation own all three college sites.
