What is it like to win the Headway Scholarship?

The Headway Scholarship is made possible through the generosity of John and Liz Soars.

“The setting up of the Headway Scholarship, over ten years ago, was our way of repaying teachers for the trust you have placed in our writing. The exceptionally positive response from scholarship winners, from so many countries, has been very gratifying indeed.”
