Three masters-level students from the University of Plymouth are pursuing their passions for the marine environment with support from UK law firm Ashfords LLP.
The firm provides financial backing to the students as they pursue programmes developed in response to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The funding has enabled three recent graduates, who completed their undergraduate studies in 2022, to stay in the South West and continue their education.
Caroline Millan and Janine Douglas have enrolled on the MSc Marine Conservation programme, and Maizie Edwards is working towards an MSc Applied Marine Science.
The scholarships are the latest element of a long-running partnership between Ashfords and the University’s Marine Institute. The firm has previously provided funding for undergraduate prizes, with around 20 students benefiting from the law firm’s support.
