Winner of the previous scholarship (De Niro Scholarship)

Kong e1502192008460I am very honoured to be the recipient of the scholarship! In September I will be moving from Canada to the UK to start my Master’s in Development Studies at the London School of Economics. I am extremely excited to be able to live and study in London, and the money from this scholarship will be a great contribution to help me fund my living costs. My intention is to use this money to enjoy the beautiful city of London while I learn and research the complex nature of tackling poverty in the developing world.

Rebecca Kong will be attending the London School of Economics in September 2017, pursuing an MSc in Development Studies.

For current applicants, we recommend the reading of her brilliant essay on the movie “Casino”.
