Stationersâ€™ Foundation ceremony
Abigail Pukaniuk and Daniel Parker, the two recipients from Oxford Brookes in 2010 of bursaries from the Stationers’ Foundation, were made Freemen of the City livery company on Monday 24 October 2011. Abigail and Daniel have now graduated from the MA Publishing. At the same ceremony, the 2011 bursary recipients, including Emma Griffin from Oxford Brookes, were called forward by Nick Steidl, Chairman of the Foundation, to receive their certificates.
The Foundation offers ten bursaries to postgraduate students on specific courses related to Communication and Content industries, including the MA Publishing at Oxford Brookes. Successful students each receive a bursary of £6,000 and are offered the opportunity to receive mentoring during the period of their studies from an appropriate member of the Stationers’ Company, taking into account the specific interests of the student. On successful completion of their Master’s programmes, the award winners are presented with the Freedom of the Stationers’ Company.
