Carnegie Class of 78-82 Scholarship
A life changing and career defining experience
The Carnegie Class of 78-82 Scholarship was set up by graduates who studied at the Carnegie School of Physical Education from 1978-82. The graduates wanted to set up the scholarship to help current students have the same opportunities they had.
The scholarship is awarded to one first year student each year, studying in the Carnegie School of Sport. The successful student, will have excelled in their entry qualifications, and is the first in their family to attend university.
Our time here instilled in us the core principles of integrity and fair play. Our education also gave us the confidence and expertise in sport education and the communication skills needed to go out and improve the lives of others through physical education and sport, help people in the community and serve the wider society.
We hope that the scholarship will allow the recipients to make the most of university life and help them to make those same lifelong friendships and bonds which have supported us all in both good and challenging times."

"My mother passed away the year just before I came to Leeds Beckett so leaving my father was difficult. I would like to complete my degree in remembrance of her, she was extremely proud and excited when I was offered my place at university. She was my greatest support and best friend."Meagn Botha BSc (Hons) Science of Sport Performance
"When I was taking part in PE classes I always looked up to the teacher and wanted to be them, to be the person who was knowledgeable and able to lead sport for young people, and as I went through my education I took all the opportunities I could to volunteer in teaching sport."Kinga Wota BA (Hons) Physical Education
