The Ede & Ravenscroft Prize 2016: Humanities winners

(23 March 2017)

Two Humanities students participating in the 2016 Student Experience Internship (SEI) programme have been recognised for going the extra mile during their summer internship last year.  This month they were awarded their graduation package courtesy of a donation from graduation gown suppliers, Ede & Ravenscroft. 

Anna Grant (LLB Law, School of Law) was a student support and advice intern in the Atrium. She was responsible for researching and implementing ways in which the University can encourage students to take control of their own finances, as well as informing staff of how to use these resources effectively. Her manager, Katie Urnevitch, said: “Anna is a deserving candidate for this prize due to the legacy and lasting impact she has had on the Student Support and Advice service, which will shape and develop our future work.”

Madeleine Jones (BA Politics, Philosophy and Economics, School of Social Sciences) was a crowdfunding and marketing intern with charity RE>BUILD in Bury. She spent her summer updating both marketing materials and a website, therefore moving the organisation closer to being able to develop a crowd funding campaign for a key project. Madeleine’s manager, Liz Jackson, said: “She worked really hard to achieve our stated aims in a very short space of time and in a world where young people often receive bad press, she can feel rightly proud of what she achieved.”

The judging panel of Dr Paul Redmond, Tammy Goldfeld and Ian Bradley, from the Directorate for the Student Experience, identified the two winners among 22 nominated students, from over 70 who took part in the SEI programme last summer.
