DRS Student Research Bursary Scheme award recipients announced!

The DRS Student Bursary Scheme has awarded bursaries to the following students:

Lilian Bosch, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

Anna Borzenkova, University of Wolverhampton

Nico Klenner, RMIT University

Florence Nwankwo, Nottingham Trent University

Will Renel, Royal College of Art

Tian Tian, School of Design, University of Leeds

A record number of 23 applications were put through the double-blind review and selection process this year. Appreciation and thanks go to all students who submitted. The assessment panel noted how high the quality of the applications was this year, making it a very difficult task to arrive at the finalists.

The assessment panel also agreed to increase the total number of awards made to six, a reflection of the quality of all submissions.

Congratulations to those awarded and watch this space for some really interesting research reports in the coming year.


The date of next year’s award will be announced via the DRS website and social media channels. Previous student bursary reports can be found here.
