Michaela, a former pupil of Sowerby Bridge High School, said: “It’s a great honour for me to receive this Bright Futures Scholarship.
“I can now focus my full attention on my degree course without the burden of financial worry.
“I have always been passionate about sciences and am very much enjoying being able to specialise in Biomedical Sciences at university with like-minded people.”
