Max Yates  - Final Year Prize Winner - UCS

"After graduating in September (2019) I am really pleased to receive the Michael Davie Foundation Research Award for the second time, this time in my final year. My time at UCS has been an amazing and unforgettable experience made even more memorable by this award. I think that the award helps motivate students at UCS and teaches them that hard work does pay off and is most definitely recognised in this institution. 

I would like to thank the trustees again who presented the award and I also wish all my peers good luck in the future.
