Chin-Yueh Bursary

This award is given in memory of Chin-Yueh Hsu who was a student on the MA Dance Movement Psychotherapy programme at Goldsmiths. Chin-Yueh died just after completing her final draft submissions after a long illness and graduated posthumously in 2015. This award is to honour her contribution to the MA Dance Movement Psychotherapy community, in which her commitment, determination and sensitivity to others were greatly valued.

The bursary is intended to support an individual international student who is experiencing unavoidable financial hardship and who can demonstrate the quality of their performance on the program through their attendance, engagement and commitment.
