2021 Recipient | Joshua Clift | Founders' Bursary
The Founders' Bursary was set up in 2002 by the New College Board to honour the founders of New College.
It is awarded to a student in need of financial assistance who will uphold the values of the College and its founders.
Josh is a worthy recipient. After moving from Canberra to New College to study a Bachelor of Music (Composition), he has been involved in many aspects of College life. Most recently, he acted as the lead role in the New College play, The Great Gatsby.
I think New College has more opportunities to try new things than other colleges have. The amount of things you can get involved in is so broad.
The Founders' Bursary has taken the financial burden off Josh's family and has allowed him to make the most of his New College experience.
