What is the Sophie Drozdzik Memorial Scholarship?

This scholarship has been set up in memory of Sophie who was due to join BU in 2015 on a BA ( Hons ) TV Production course, but sadly passed away. Her family approached BU to see if we would donate her forthcoming ‘Academic Excellence Scholarship’ to her memorial fund, with donations going to research in juvenile myoclonic epilepsy.  Due to the regulations governing BU’s charity status, we were unable to action this so instead committed to set up a scholarship in her name, open to students of colleges within the Warwickshire College Group where Sophie studied.

The scholarship is for £2,000 for the first year of study.

It is specifically available for those studying creative subjects, in the spirit of Sophie’s interests.  Applicants must also have a similar outstanding academic profile to Sophie.

The Sophie Drozdzik Memorial Scholarship will not be awarded in addition to the Academic Excellence Scholarship - the successful applicant will receive it instead.
