The T J Jones Scholarship Fund has made a tremendously positive impact on my life as a student. The funding has allowed me to achieve significantly more than I would have had I not been the recipient of such funding. It allowed me to completely engage with my studies by taking away pressures that students would commonly experience during university, allowing me to purchase books on the reading lists and purchase vital software well beyond my original budget.

The scholarship funding also allowed me to engage in extra-curricular activities such as Formula Student - a competition to produce a prototype single-seat race car and present it as if to a manufacturing firm. Being a team member in the universities Formula Student team has provided an insight in to what it is like to work on a real engineering project and overcome associated challenges.
Students were able to examine racing vehicles from a number of motorsports during a visit to Silverstone.

Ultimately, the T J Jones Scholarship facilitated my earning a First Class Master’s in Mechanical Engineering, for which I will be eternally thankful.
