Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal in the competition for the 2012 Sky Bob Friend Memorial Scholarship. The entries were of an exceptionally high standard, so choosing the candidates to go forward to the next stage was harder than ever. However, after very careful scrutiny and discussion, I am pleased to announce that we were able to reach a unanimous decision. Huge congratulations to: Jemma Collins, Lydia Deichmann, Sam Thompson, William Topping and Kieran Watkins. Each of you will sit the test and meet the interview panel on Wednesday. Ian and I will speak to you about how to prepare. Sincere commiserations to all the candidates who did not make the shortlist. When the process is over we will be happy to offer detailed feedback. I can only repeat that the standard was extremely high this year. The Centre is proud of you.
