Welcome to the home of Katie's Scholarship
Katie was a dedicated and high achieving ENV student enrolled on the University of East Anglia's Year in North America programme (2002-2006). She died in April 2006 while being treated for Leukaemia and was subsequently awarded a posthumous First Class Honours Degree in Environmental Sciences.
The Katie Wilkinson Research Scholarship has been established as a Registered Charity (No 1117991) in memory of Katie, and as a means to reward outstanding student research. The Scholarship funds are available for UEA undergraduate students completing their final year projects in the School of Environmental Sciences.
In line with the ethos of the scholarship, we hope our funds will enable students to have some fun, maybe an adventure, and who knows, perhaps even the experience of a lifetime!
About The Katie Wilkinson Scholarship
The funds can be used to cover:
The trustees will use the following criteria to assess applications for support:
“I would like to offer my deepest gratitude for The Katie Wilkinson Research Scholarship, as due to the remoteness of the study site, my costs in arriving at the project were substantial and the charities support was invaluable”
“The Katie Wilkinson scholarship award greatly assisted this research by allowing me to travel to the Montserrat, West Indies in order to collect my field data”
" By doing this fieldwork, it made me realise why I love studying Environmental Earth Sciences. I would like to thank the Katie Wilkinson Research Fund for their financial help. I couldn’t have done this trip without those funds. I will now eagerly await to see what I have found from those samples "
