LUC is delighted to announce that our Environmental Planning Intern in Bristol, Sarah Bannister, has received an RTPI Trust Bursary to aid her in her future studies.
The bursary was set up to help high-achieving students from diverse backgrounds or living with a disability to access planning as the first step towards Chartered membership. Recipients are selected by an external panel of independent judges based on their performance of a planning related task. The task explored how planning could help address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, with Sarah focusing on health in relation to the elderly population.
Sarah will receive £2,000 to support her studies later this year. Watch Sarah’s submission below:
Sarah said: “I am really pleased to have received the bursary and excited to use the money towards taking an Environmental Planning and Design module at university. Studying planning is exciting as it touches on many areas of our day to day life. Knowing that you could potentially improve a community or improve someone’s quality of life through good planning is rewarding.”
