BSc (Hons) Applied Music student, Nicholas Kirk, says the scholarship not only provided him with essential resources but opened new avenues to him. As well as contributing towards vital equipment, it helped with essential travel between his home in Glasgow and Lews Castle College UHI during course time and attendance at a music residency in Stornoway.
It also helped toward the production costs of a four-track CD, which he and fellow-students recorded and released with the band, Eabhall. Since its release, the band has received a stack of gigs and even undertook a small tour in Scotland and England.
“The fund was hugely
valuable. I am greatly
appreciative of it.”
