A former student of Loreto College Coleraine has been awarded a prestigious scholarship as she begins her studies at University College London.

Bronwen Butler, who completed her A Levels at Loreto College in June 2014, is now reading Geography at University College London.  She has been awarded a Reuben Scholarship, based on her academic excellence and personal background, which will mean an award of £10,000 for each academic year of her degree course, towards living expenses and accommodation.

The Reuben Scholarship Programme was set up in 2012, funded by a donation from the Reuben Foundation. Formed in 2002, the Reuben Foundation was created to channel the charitable giving of the Reuben Brothers. The brothers continue to proactively look at supporting a range of charitable causes, from long-term funding projects to individual charitable donations.

Bronwen was stunned and delighted at this award, which she described as an amazing opportunity. Bronwen was congratulated on her Scholarship by Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, on behalf of all the staff and students of the College.
