UHI Scholarship

Awarded to Aviemore student

Agnieszka Mydlo has been awarded our Undergraduate Scholarship which provides financial support to students studying a business discipline in the Inverness and Moray College UHI areas. This will help her complete BA(Hons) in accounting and finance at Inverness College UHI.

“I am delighted to have been awarded this scholarship,” Agnieszka said. “It has enabled me to continue with my studies to degree level. In turn, this should help me attain a career in accountancy while staying in the Highlands.”

The scholarship was set up earlier this year to encourage more students in the Inverness and Moray area to study locally with the University of the Highlands and Islands and consider careers in finance with Highland businesses.

Kevin Wood said: “In awarding this scholarship, we’re delighted to be able to support both the development of the university in the area and help Agnieszka in her goal of achieving an honours degree.”

Duncan added: “Both Kevin and I were the first in our families to go to University and we know how important it was to have access to higher education without financial barriers blocking this career path. As a firm we want to provide the same opportunities to young people in the area and hopefully improve the talent pool for all financial firms in the North of Scotland.”

The scholarship, which is worth £1,250 per year to the successful student, was arranged through the University of the Highlands and Islands’ development office. 

The university’s key account director Gary I Campbell said: “The support of local businesses such as Mackenzie Investment Strategies Ltd is tremendously important to the development of the university. Not only did the company set up its own scholarship which Agnieszka has benefited from this year, it has also separately contributed to the university’s general scholarship fund, meaning that even more students can benefit from its support.”
