Scholarship Description: The Victoria Fernandes Scholarship has been established by The School of Engineering in memory of one of our former PhD students, Victoria Fernandes. Victoria sadly died shortly before submitting her PhD thesis in 2006. Vicky (as she was widely referred to) had obtained a first class Warwick MEng in 2003 and continued onto our research degree programme, examining aspects of cementitious materials and their application to low-cost housing in the tropics. Throughout her studies she was ill with an infection that often incapacitated her, yet after every medical setback she returned to her studies with renewed determination. Her commitment to completing those studies was exceptional and extraordinary and she consciously risked her life for them. This Scholarship has been established in recognition and memory of her commitment, dedication and courage. She set an example for us all.
