On the 5th September 2018 we welcomed 66 Carnegie Undergraduate Vacation Scholars to our first Carnegie Vacation Scholarships Event held at The Mansion House, Edinburgh Zoo.
The event featured poster presentations from Undergraduate students from all the Scottish universities who have just completed their Carnegie Vacation Scholarships this summer. We also heard speeches from our Chair, Prof Dame Anne Glover and Prof Niamh NicDaeid (former Carnegie Large Grant Holder).
A judging panel comprising of Trustees, previous and current members of staff, former and current Carnegie Grant Holders and Scholars awarded Best Posters to Albara Elgehani (pictured left), Jason Main, Daniel Dolan and Ehsan Salim. Runners up prizes were awarded to Benjamin Cooper, Crystal Silver (pictured right), Isla McCrone and Scott Herman. The People's Choice award went to Tomasz Plaskocinski.
