Diona Melissa Cornelio, a current University of Hull student of Education, said: “Being a scholarship awardee at the University of Hull has been empowering for me. My scholarship has not just funded my education, but has encouraged my passion to be the change I wish to see around me.
“I hope that these new Fairer Future Global Scholarships will benefit other students and encourage them not only to follow their ambitions, but also to contribute to some of the world’s biggest issues for now and in the future.”
