Scholarship student George Brough has been awarded the Lisa Wilson Scholarship Fund annual prize for achievement. The Brighton-born student achieved a first class honours degree in Fashion Management with Marketing from Southampton Solent University this summer.
On receiving his award, George, who is now working as an intern at a top London fashion PR company, said: “I am delighted to win this prize. Winning a Lisa Wilson Scholarship enabled me to get through my course without having huge financial worries. That, together with the support and advice of my tutors on the course, has been a huge asset throughout my course.”
This summer the fund reached the phenomenal total of £240,000 and took the total number of scholarships, worth up to £1000 per year for the duration of their course, to 68.
