Awards from the Stationers’ Foundation
Lucy Raby and Bethan Summerfield, two previous recipients from the Oxford International Centre for Publishing of bursaries from the Stationers’ Foundation, were made Freemen of the City livery company on Monday 13 January 2020. At the same ceremony, the 2019-20 bursary winners, Ellie Masterman and Molly Chell, received their certificates.
The Foundation offers bursaries to postgraduate students on specific courses related to the Communication and Content industries, including the MA Publishing Media at Oxford Brookes. Successful students receive a bursary of £6,000 and are offered the opportunity to receive mentoring during the period of their studies from an appropriate member of the Stationers’ Company, taking into account the specific interests of the student. On successful completion of their Master’s programmes, the award winners are presented with the Freedom of the Stationers’ Company.
