Raman Mistry Scholarship

Mr Raman Mistry studied at Aston University between 1974 and 1977. Having limited funds he applied for a Grant and was fortunate enough to receive it. This income was very useful in successfully pursuing his education.

Raman says:

“To this day, I am eternally grateful. Without this help, I would not be where I am today and I would never have done so much or progressed so much if I didn’t pursue my education at Aston. Aston was the foundation for my life and a stepping stone to go further. A university education opens so many doors. No person should be turned back from studying due to a lack of funds.”

The scholarship provides discretionary financial assistance to a successful applicant each academic year. The total amount awarded varies each year.
