Comments from 2014-15 award recipients
“The Santander Mobility Scholarship award is a very valuable tool to facilitate international, extracurricular academic opportunities that are not readily available. I used the scholarship to pay for travel & lodging expenses. Santander has, in a very tangible way, demonstrated its commitment to the development of the future leaders of the world. I thank the University of Buckingham and Santander Bank for this remarkable opportunity that has undoubtedly added significant value to my personal, professional and academic development.”

“The conference was intended to discuss the peace and stability of Africa. It offered me the opportunity to be informed on the measures, policies and programs that are underway to sustaining the peace, stability and progress of the African continent.
The funds were adequately sufficient, but like the proverbial Oliver Twist will put it ‘we can only ask for more’. I will recommend that they should go further to provide funding for PhD studies”.
