Heather McLarty, Clydebank High School, 2011 Bursary Award Winner
Heather commented: "I am extremely delighted to have been successful in being awarded this bursary. It was so nerve-wracking sitting in that waiting room to be interviewed – but now I know that it was all worth the while. The bursary has benefited me greatly as I have commenced my studying at Strathclyde: from travel expenses, books, stationary, and any other expenses. It is assuring to know that I will be financially stable throughout my time at university: I will not have to sacrifice my studying with extra shifts at work. I am so thankful for being offered such a precious opportunity!"
Described by her teachers as a “bundle of fun” , “delightful and hard working”, a “real character and a super kid” Heather was an outstanding student who excelled in all of her studies.
