Heriot-Watt University has announced that a funded undergrad scholarship opportunity will be available due to the generosity of alumnus Gareth Henry. In addition to funding the scholarships, Gareth Henry will offer regular mentoring sessions to enhance career growth for the selected students. “I am offering one call per term if [the student is in need] and then a good bit of help as they graduate on career advice and getting a job,” said Henry. “I hope that through this bursary, other Heriot-Watt graduates may see what they can achieve with study and hard work in the Actuarial Sciences.”
The chosen beneficiary of the scholarship is required to be enrolled in the Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics course and show that they are in financial need of the scholarship. Henry Gareth himself graduated from Heriot-Watt University with a Bachelor of Science degree with first-class honors in Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics in 2001, most likely prompting him to choose a student currently in the program. With such an amazing background with the university, it is no wonder that Gareth Henry has made the decision to choose the current students to benefit from his mentoring program.
Gareth Henry is a true believer that the University’s scholarship programs will be extremely useful in the future for students. Especially those programs which cultivate the understanding of technological advances. The university is respected and established worldwide as a school that produces highly desirable graduates that are quickly snatched up by employers in the engineering, business, and science fields.
Since graduating from Heriot-Watt University, Henry Gareth has most recently been serving as Managing Director, Global Head of Investor Relations and Partner at Angelo, Gordon & Co. With the help from Henry, the student chosen to receive the scholarship likely has a future just as bright ahead of them.
