The Flowers Scholarship September 2021

The Flowers Scholarship was established in order to support a talented student through their University journey.  Since studying at Northumbria in the 1990s, both Paul and Andrea Flowers have gone onto have successful careers, and they recognise the impact of their time at Northumbria in a personal and professional capacity.
