University of Durham - Scholarships help fight crunch

February 12, 2009

A cash pot of £200,000 has been put up by the University of Durham to help its graduates compete for jobs as recession hits the job market. The university is offering about 100 students £2,000 scholarships to cover living costs during a one-year postgraduate course at the university, starting this October.

Anthony Forster, pro vice-chancellor for teaching and learning, said: "We recognise that, even for the most academically able and talented graduates, it's a tough economic environment in which to seek employment. We want to give our graduates an extra incentive to build on their skills, ensuring they are in the very best position to get a firm foot on the career ladder."
