Hardev Singh

An aspiring Shadwell architect has been awarded a prestigious arts scholarship to support his studies.

Hardev Singh, a former pupil of Boston Spa School, is undertaking his first year of a degree in Architecture at Leeds Beckett University. He is one of seven undergraduates from the university to have been selected to receive the funding from property investors, Rushbond Plc.

The 23-year-old commented: “I love art and am passionate about it. Design is what comes naturally to me and architecture is what I will pursue career wise, simply because it would be a pleasure to do something I enjoy and to make a living from it.

“To receive this scholarship from Rushbond plc is a real honour for me. I will be able to use the funding towards arts and course related materials, which in turn will benefit my overall work and performance.”
