Lewis Binns

BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching undergraduate, Lewis Binns, is one of 14 Leeds Beckett first year students to be selected for the University’s annual Bright Futures Scholarships.

Lewis, aged 18, and a former pupil of Minsthorpe Community College, said he was delighted to receive the scholarship and that he would use the funding towards living expenses and his university accommodation costs. 

He commented: “It’s a great honour for me to receive this Bright Futures Scholarship. I can now focus my full attention on my degree course without the burden of financial worry. I have always had a keen interest in sports and it was while I was studying at college that I realised I wanted to do sports coaching for a future career. I hope that with this degree and my commitment and hard work, I will achieve that goal.”
