Ellen Day is a BA1 Architecture student, and is one of four students in the UK to have won the Part 1 RIBA Bursary.
Ellen, who is extremely pleased with her accomplishment, said:
” For many the financial pressures associated with studying can have prohibitive, and midway through my first year I was very close to dropping out due to the need to sustain a certain level of income. With the help of this bursary, in my second and third year I can focus on my training, and I feel much more optimistic about the future.
“My personal tutor, Roberto Braglia, was extremely supportive of my application, and I am grateful to the RIBA for giving me the opportunity to make the most of my time here at the University of Portsmouth.”
