Jason Smith

Jason Smith, is one of 14 Leeds Beckett first year students to be selected for the University’s annual Bright Futures Scholarships.

Jason, aged 19, and a former pupil of John Taylor High School, said he was delighted to receive the scholarship. He commented: “For the second year of my degree I plan to undertake a year in industry to ensure I can gain first-hand experience within the sports event management industry.

This is my dream career path and to ensure I get the best possible 12 month placement I need to ensure I have a lot of relevant work experience under my belt. The Bright Futures Scholarship will help fund the travel and accommodation costs incurred while undertaking this work experience over the next few months. I’ll also use some of the money for course-related materials and textbooks.”
