Andrew Platten Scholarship
Who is the scholarship awarded to?
The Andrew Platten Scholarship was established to commemorate Andrew's life and his exemplary contribution to the university. As such, the scholarship is endowed in perpetuity. Andrew Platten worked at Leeds Beckett for eight years and published several influential research papers in construction management. He travelled regularly and built strong partnerships abroad, all while remaining dedicated to teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate modules.

The scholarship is awarded to one first year student every year who is studying a built environment and engineering subject. They will have excelled in their entry qualifications, being the first in their family to attend university
