Donald Watt was a mature student at Lancaster University in the late 1980's, taking a degree in Religious Studies. After his death in 2008 his widow Margot established a legacy pledge to the University. On Margot's death in 2014 the legacy was made to the University.
This is a new fund which is designed to support students in financial need who have made outstanding academic progression on to their next year study. It is intended to reward applicants who did not receive a University scholarship based on their entry grades, but have since performed at a high academic level on commencing their studies at Lancaster.
