The 2020 SPAB Scholarship fell victim to the Covid-19 Lockdown and was postponed a week prior to the three scholars embarking. The 2020 Scholars are:
Amy Redman – Architect
Libby Watts – Architect
Lucy Newport – Structural Engineer
2020 Scholars Fundraising
We are delighted that the three Scholars are undertaking a fundraising walk on behalf of the DST through the Lake district, beginning on the 2nd September. 116km and 16 church visits over 4 days.
You can follow their efforts and sketches on their Instagram.
We also very much hope that you may be able to support them with their target and find further details via their fundraising page on JustGiving.
The Pandemic has had far reaching effects for all of us, our friends and our loved ones. For the three scholars, this came as a further blow after leaving the security of their employment and accommodation ready for nine months on the road. In order to be able to offer support to the Scholars and to ensure (that financially at least) they are able to undertake a SPAB Scholarship in 2021, the DST has set up a fund specifically in response to the Covid impacts on the 2020 Scholarship.
