Raman Mistry Scholarship

Raman Mistry studied at Aston University between 1974 and 1977.  Having limited funds he applied for a Grant and was fortunate enough to receive it.  This income was very useful in successfully pursuing his education.

Raman says: “to this day, I am eternally grateful.  Without this help, I would not be where I am today and I would never have done so much or progressed so much if I didn’t pursue my education at Aston.  Aston was the foundation for my life and a stepping stone to go further.  A university education opens so many doors.  No person should be turned back from studying due to a lack of funds.”
