                 (i)     Scholarship Details

Eira understood the value and transformative power of education; especially to women from countries whose economic, social and cultural background might present challenges and barriers to the realization of their potential. As a woman of independent means, in 2012 Eira endowed a significant fund to Swansea University for the establishment of a Scholarship in her name. Her purpose was to help such women realize their potential, and in doing so lift both their community and home country.

Eira took a keen interest in the women that her scholarship sponsored. She followed their progress and their stories and enjoyed meeting them at the annual Scholarship Winners Dinner – although preferring to keep her identity hidden, she never revealed herself as their benefactor.
