Exploring the Sykes Travel Scholarships

The David (1963, Chemistry) and Lois Sykes Scholarships for travel to China were established through the gift of Univ Old Member David Sykes and his wife Lois.

Two awards for travel in mainland China are generally awarded each year and are available to both undergraduates and graduates (other than Chinese nationals).

“My trip to China was a fantastic and highly engaging experience. I am very grateful to University College for awarding me funding through the David & Lois Sykes Travel Grant, giving me this amazing opportunity.” – Liliana Barbieri (DPhil in Biomedical Imaging)

We hope you enjoy reading this selection of travel reports from those who have benefited from the David and Lois Sykes Scholarships.

“I would like to express my deep gratitude to University College and David and Lois Sykes for their support.” – Henry Weikel (MSt, English)
