St David’s Day grants support two young people to take the next steps in their careers

Two lucky grant recipients from the Wales in London Philanthropic Fund were announced at this year’s virtual St David’s Day celebration.

Jacob received a grant to support his move from rural North Wales to London to take his place on an IT graduate scheme in London. Jacob studied Cybersecurity at the University of Chester for 3 years, achieving a 1st Class honours degree and spent the following year studying a master’s in Computer Information Systems at Liverpool John Moore’s University.

Hannah (pictured), who plays the viola, will be using the funding to undertake a postgraduate course at Guildhall School of Music and Drama in September. Hannah hopes to pursue a career in music as a soloist, chamber musician and member of a professional orchestra.

The Wales in London Philanthropic Fund, managed by Community Foundation Wales, supports young people who were born and/or educated in Wales to develop their education, learning, business and career skills, and broaden their horizons in London or outside Wales.
