News in brief
South Yorks scholarly success

Twenty-five young people gained a place at university this year, thanks to their hard work and the Ogden scholarships run through the University and funded by Yorkshire businessman Robert Ogden. Seven started at Leeds this term, studying subjects from nursing to geography and law. The scholarships offer financial support to students from the former coal-mining areas to stay on in the sixth form, and mentoring and advice in applying to university. Students at Leeds also receive a scholarship during their undergraduate years. Each year the number of young people benefiting from the scheme increases; forty-four new scholars are now studying A levels at schools and colleges throughout South Yorkshire, thanks to the scheme.
