I really cannot express how grateful I am to have been afforded this opportunity to study Art History and Museum Curating at Sussex. Without your support, achieving this would have been tremendously difficult, if not impossible. Because of your scholarship, I have moved to this wonderful city and am building an exciting future for myself in the Arts industry!” Alice Seagrave-Hindmarch
