Fifth Norman Lloyd Scholar selected

RSC Belgium is proud to announce that the fifth recipient of the Dr Norman C. Lloyd Scholarship at Cardiff University has been selected and is enjoying their first year at the university. William Cawdell started his MCheM degree in Chemistry at the end of September.

The Norman Lloyd Scholarship is given to new students to the Cardiff School of Chemistry who are of high academic standing and a resident of Wales.

In an email thanking the section for sponsoring his award William (pictured above) wrote:

"I am delighted to have been selected as a beneficiary of the Dr Norman C Lloyd scholarship. I am really enjoying my first semester studying chemistry at Cardiff University. As well as studying I enjoy playing badminton for the university squad and building computers. I plan to continue my education after my bachelors degree either in Cardiff or in another university either in the UK or abroad. I ultimately want to teach in schools or perhaps at university in the future."

We all wish William every success in his studies at Cardiff.

The scholarship
The Norman Lloyd scholarship was set up by RSC Belgium in collaboration with Norman’s family and Cardiff University in memory of our old friend and supporter Norman Lloyd. Norman was himself a student at an institution that is now part of the university. The funds raised provide an annual scholarship of £1,000 for an undergraduate student, usually in their first year of study, at the Cardiff School of Chemistry.
