For the second consecutive year, important scholarships have been granted to students from the Engineering Department's language unit.
Entente Cordiale Scholarship:
One Entente Cordiale Scholarship a year is granted for the whole of the United Kingdom.This year and last it was won by students from CUED:
Kate Crawford (2001 - 2002) and Chris Wallwork (2002 - 2003).
The award covers a £600 a month grant, registration and study fees, allowance for maintenance (travel, board, lodging, books), support services (accommodation, registration). Both students registered at prestigious schools such as the Ecole Centrale Paris and SUPAERO.
Study Tour Award for Outstanding Students of the Japanese Language
Patrick Choi (2001) and Angela Tam (2002) both won the Study Tour Award for Outstanding Students of the Japanese Language. Only one study tour award is made each year, worldwide. It is very unusual for the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute Kansai to select their successful candidate from the same country, nevermind the same university for two consecutive years. Congratulations to the Japanese team for having reached such a high standard in such a short time. The Award covers travel expenses, accommodation in Japanese homes, board and a two weeks programme including lectures (language, social & cultural aspect of Japan), visits of industrial and historical sites.
Reima Puururen was awarded a "Hochschulsommerkusstipendium" by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), worth £400 and attended a four week summer university course at Stuttgart.
Casimir D'Angelo, Director of the Language Unit commented: "We are delighted with our students' success and hope that this will encourage more students to join the Language Programme for Engineers."
