Event description

Description

To celebrate Nottinghamshire's premier scholarship 70th anniversary, supporters, including alumni, donors, Trustees and interested parties are invited to a special Thanksgiving celebration on Tuesday, November 26th in Nottingham.

Since its inception in 1949 the Scholarship has provided an opportunity for 150 young professionals from a broad range of industries and professions to visit the USA, with the aim of sharing knowledge and culture to the benefit of the Scholar, their employer and Nottinghamshire.

Over the years the Roosevelt family has directly supported and given their personal time to the scholarship, including Eleanor Roosevelt and Haven Roosevelt, who both hosted Scholars in the USA and visited Nottingham.

The 70th Anniversary Thanksgiving event is an opportunity to hear inspirational stories from past scholars on what they learned in the USA and their achievements since returning, and to hear from Trustees about current plans and aspirations for the future of the Scholarship. Prospective scholars, funders and partners are also welcome to come along and find out more.

Mick Burrows, former Chief Exec of Notts County Council and chairman of the Scholarship, commented

" It's a very special moment for our scholarship as we celebrate 70 years since the first scholars arrived in America. It's unique, it's life changing and it's benefitted not just Nottinghamshire activities but has also impacted on a number of national developments through the ongoing work of past and present scholars. I am very proud, along with my fellow trustees in ensuring it continues to build long lasting relationships with the United States as we celebrate its success.”
