Amy Li Cambridge Scholarship

last modified Oct 17, 2014 11:05 AM

A new scholarship programme has been established at the University of Cambridge in memory of a former Chemical Engineering student, Amy Li. Amy was born in China but attended school in the UK and won a place to study Chemical Engineering at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. After graduating in 2010 she took up a post as Safety Engineer with DNV-GL, a leading organisation in the maritime, oil and gas, and energy industries. She died only three years later, whilst working in Aberdeen.

Her colleagues at DNV GL determined to remember her by establishing a scholarship that will enable international students to follow in her footsteps at Cambridge. Their generous donation will be matched by funding from the Cambridge Commonwealth, European & International Trust, which exists to support international students at the University.

The scholarships will be awarded to undergraduates from any country outside the EU and will be available to outstanding applicants in Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or Chemical Engineering. Selected scholars will benefit from interaction with the staff of DNV GL, including possible summer vacation placements.

Dr Patrick Barrie, Deputy Head of Department, was Amy Li's Director of Studies while she was at Cambridge. He says "I remember interviewing Amy for admission and supervising her. I was deeply saddened by the tragic news of her death last year at such an early stage of her life and career. The establishment of these scholarships, aimed at helping students like Amy, mean that her name will be remembered."

Note for students looking for scholarships:

You are encouraged to use the Trust's scholarships search to find all the awards for which you may be eligible.
