Carnegie Class of 75-77 Scholarship
The Carnegie Family
The Carnegie Class of 75-77 Scholarship was set up by graduates who studied in the Carnegie School of Physical Education from 1975-77. The idea was to celebrate their time at Carnegie while enabling others to have the same opportunities, emphasising their ongoing connections and friendships as part of ‘the Carnegie family’.
The scholarship is awarded to one first year student each year studying in the Carnegie School of Sport, who has excelled in their entry qualifications, and is the first in their family to attend university.
As graduates we still feel very strongly that we are part of a Carnegie family. We all agreed that we wanted to put something back so that current Carnegie students who might have financial difficulties could fulfil their learning ambitions, make the most of the same amazing educational experience that we all did, and be able to graduate and become part of that wider Carnegie family.

"When I was younger there was a point in my life when I realised I was very unhealthy, but I was able to turn things around for myself by eating healthier and exercising properly. This made me realise that I wanted to work in sport fitness and be a nutritionist to help others to change their lives in the same way."Hasan Din BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Science
"Receiving this scholarship shows that Leeds Beckett wants to help even first year students like me to achieve what maybe a more financially privileged person can. I want to inspire prospective students and people in similar situations as me, so that they can achieve whatever they want to achieve."Carla Peniston BA (Hons) Sport Business Management
