KYLIE MINOGUE BECOMES PATRON OF NEW CHARITABLE FOUNDATION FOR UK STUDENTS

Pop superstar Kylie Minogue is to become patron of the StudyVox Foundation, a new charity being launched today by the upcoming UK student social networking site, StudyVox (www.studyvox.co.uk ). The StudyVox Foundation has been formed to provide bursary support to UK undergraduates seeking help with tuition fees.

Whilst in the UK, Kylie – an icon for so many young people – has been spending time at StudyVox HQ to support the Foundation launch and to meet the student team, as well as recording material for StudyVox FM, the first online radio station in the UK dedicated to student music and other content.

Kylie said: “Studyvox is such a fantastic site for students. It helps them to be connected with one another wherever they may be across the country. I would have loved to have access to this kind of thing when I was studying!”

StudyVox is supporting the launch of The StudyVox Foundation by pledging an initial £16,000 in bursaries to help with student fees.

The first award of £10,000 and three other awards of £2,000 each will be presented by Kylie Minogue to UK students members of Studyvox in the spring of 2010.

Kylie continued: “It will be a great honour to present the first bursaries on behalf of The Studyvox Foundation. Having visited the headquarters, I know it is a very worthwhile and exciting venture.”

Kevin Martin, Joint CEO of StudyVox, added: “We think it’s very important that StudyVox states its complete commitment to the student population from the very beginning, and creating the Studyvox Foundation is an effective way of doing exactly that.

“Kylie’s support is a fantastic way of raising the StudyVox Foundation’s profile and getting the word out to students across the UK. Her patronage of The Foundation will add tremendously to its ability to make a difference to the lives of young people.”
