Leeds Beckett University is committed to making a positive and decisive difference to the lives of our students during their time at University, regardless of their social or financial background. As well as supporting students through our Bright Futures Scholarships some of our alumni and friends also choose to support students with their own individual projects based on their own passion and experiences.
With the generous support of people like Sir Bob Murray CBE, Professor Donald Bligh and Graham Rimmer, we have been able to help over 40 students over the last five years with work placements, mentoring and financial support. Find out about the scholarships we currently offer through the kind generosity of our supporters.
Sir Bob Murray CBE qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant from our University in 1972. He is a leading businessman and philanthropist with an enduring passion for education and football. Sir Bob funds scholarships at Leeds Beckett University as a testament to the transformative power of an education at our University.
Professor Donald Bligh graduated in Teacher Training from Leeds Beckett University in 1958. He believes that universities are integral to teaching knowledge, but also creating new knowledge and new interpretations of old knowledge by use of the imagination and then testing ideas by research and intellectual criticism.
The Claire Mascall PR Prize is awarded each year to Leeds Beckett University students by Graham Rimmer, Claire's widower. During her career, Claire Mascall worked at a diverse range of organisations, from British Nuclear Fuels to the London Stock Exchange, which she left to establish a highly successful consultancy
