The Danny Fullbrook Fearless Foundation Bursary

Danny Fullbrook, the chief football writer of the Daily Star, was well known to fans and players both as a writer and as a regular and forthright guest on the Sunday Supplement, talkSPORT, Radio 5 Live’s 606 and a host of other media outlets. He was a larger than life character, earning himself the nickname ‘Frank and Fearless’ and was sadly taken from us early at the age of 40 after an 18-month battle with cancer.

Danny had a reputation for fearless reporting. In fact, he lived his life and everything in it with a fearless determination. He had great passion for every project, every task and was always ready to help or encourage others. Because of that, the Fearless Foundation aims to inspire young people to make their own fearless journey through sport, education and training, embodying Danny’s attitude and approach to life to help others achieve their dreams in the way Danny did.

In memory of Danny, The Fearless Foundation and The University of Hull (where Danny studied History and Politics) would like to offer one individual a ‘Danny Fullbrook Fearless Bursary’ of £15,000 over 3 years (£5,000 per annum). Students (of any age) on the first year of a full time degree are eligible to apply. The money can be used for accommodation, equipment, for relevant conferences, or towards University course fees.

Applicants will be asked to write about how they will be making a ‘fearless journey to come to University’; this will be judged by a panel. Successful applicants must demonstrate overcoming some form of adversity.

The successful applicant will be required to write an annual thank you letter to the donors and may be required to take part in occasional promotional activities (videos, website material) in relation to the bursary. 

To apply for this opportunity please complete the form below by 29 January 2019.
