The aim of the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund Bursary scheme is to support the development of transport professionals.
Find out here how receiving a Bursary enabled individuals to study for a transport related Masters degree, and the impact this had on their future career.
Amy Albright received a Rees Jeffreys Road Fund Bursary in 2018. She tells us:
“Receiving the Bursary made it possible for me to study on UCL’s world-leading Transport and City Planning Masters programme, which offered an incredible academic experience in the urban laboratory of London. The programme equipped me for critical and creative thinking in transport innovation, which I am currently applying in the context of a local jurisdiction’s comprehensive mobility plan. It was an honour to receive the Bursary, and I’m hopeful that I can someday help to shape the future of London mobility.”
Rees Jeffreys Road Fund awarded an MSc bursary for 2019/2020 to Kate Winstanley to study at Newcastle University.
Kate told us “I wouldn’t have been able to undertake the course without your support. I have certainly learnt a lot over the past year, and will use that knowledge going forward.
My favourite module (albeit challenging) was Railways Management and Planning. This module was the most enlightening in regards to real world examples, and it was excellent experience to work alongside various external colleagues from Network Rail, and Office of Rail and Road, amongst others. Despite only being a student, my opinions and thoughts were treated with the same respect as the working external colleagues, and this really added to the positive impact of this module. “
Kate has since joined Jacobs as a Graduate Transport Planner. You can read Kate’s dissertation “To what extent is running considered to be a commuting mode, and what factors influence it?” here.
