James Kenealey gerry mason scholarship
In 2015, the Gerry Mason Engineering Excellence Scholarships were established at the University of Salford, to help the brightest and the best in engineering flourish by offering financial support for their three-year courses.

One significant milestone this year is that I have recently been in the position to open my own business drop shipping. It is only because of the freedom the scholarship has given me that I have been able to save up and start this business, so a massive thank you to you for gifting it to me as without it, I don’t know where I would be today.
Over Christmas, I will be spending time working on my business as I have free time away from the University. I am very much looking forward to semester two as, so far, this has been the most enjoyable year of study, with the best modules.
My scholarship has, without a doubt, been the most important thing to happen to me at University. It has given me freedom which I never thought I could have due to my financial situation when I started university, so I will forever be grateful for it as it has truly made my university experience the best it could ever be.
Thank you for gifting me this scholarship. Without sounding dramatic, the money really has changed my life as it has allowed me to truly enjoy the past three years without the stress of money always hanging over my head."
