Earlier this month, Belarusian student, Bahdan Zviazhynski (who, earlier this year also reached the Top 50 of the British Physics Olympiad) received a letter from the University of Cambridge, informing him that he has been selected to receive the prestigious scholarship award.
Trinity Overseas Bursaries are means-tested and cover up to the full cost of both tuition fees and maintenance. In some instances, an Overseas Bursary could be held alongside a bursary awarded by one of the Cambridge Trusts.
Only eleven students in the world are awarded a Trinity Overseas Bursary each year. Needless to say, this is a phenomenal achievement for Bahdan and he deserves the utmost recognition and respect.
Speaking about how he feels to be honoured with a Trinity Overseas Bursary, Bahdan told us:
“I feel really proud about getting the scholarship. I think it is the greatest achievement so far for me. To me, it means more than just a huge amount of money saved; this scholarship actually showed me that all the hard work I’m putting into becoming a future physicist is paying off. However, I’m not going to stop being motivated by getting this scholarship – I will strive to achieve further goals in my field, but now at university level.”
