Over 20 students from Queen Margaret University (QMU) are celebrating this week after showcasing their 2015 scholarship and awards success at a special event in the Capital.

“Awards and scholarships like this enrich students’ academic experience, build their confidence, broaden their horizons and allow them make a real contribution to their field or to serving society’s needs.”
