Moreau Scholars Selected for 2007 Awards
The Society is delighted to announce that Robert Norman(Stradbroke) and Katie Blow(Victoria) are the winners of its Moreau Leaving Scholarships for 2007. Peter Howard-Dobson (R 65-69), chairman of the selection panel, said: "We were amazed at the sheer volume of email support for all the candidates, and were immensely grateful for all the advice we received from staff and students over the course of the year.

The final interviews were quite simply a joy. What a very impressive group of young people, all of whom gave an excellent account of themselves. Ultimately, though, we had to select just two of them and found that we were united in choosing Robert and Katie. We're thrilled at the prospect of two such super Framlingham College graduates joining the scholarship programme, and look forward to the presentation of their awards on Speech Day."
The other four selectors were Brian Smith(S 53-57 & President SOF); Kirsty Wybar (P 90-03), David Mallett (K 93-03) and Norman Porter (K 50-57 & Hon Gen Sec SOF). Robert and Katie will be formally presented with their awards on Speech Day.

Apart from receiving £800 a year for the three years of their scholarship term, they will also be appointed to the Society's Council, where they will join Abigail Mackrill and Hannah Gunn, last year's scholars, and help them to ensure that younger members' expectations of the Society are brought into greater focus.

To help maintain social links within and between leaving-groups, our scholars will take on the task of organising at least one sporting and/or social event each year for their particular leaving group, and will be encouraged to work with other scholars, once appointed, to make sure these events appeal across age ranges.

A further element of the Scholarship programme is a Mentoring scheme. Each of our scholars will have, as their personal mentor, a senior member of the Council, who will provide advice and guidance (and a sympathetic ear) both as they begin to contribute to Council meetings and as they go through their university careers.

Please visit Moreau Scholarships and then Scholars for profiles of Robert and Katie, which we will update from time to time through their three-year term.
