University of Wollongong students were awarded on Thursday at the university’s Scholarship and Academic Presentation.
Fourteen students were awarded Community Scholarships from the Mumbulla Foundation, the Bega RSL Sub Branch, the Collins Family, Rotary Club of Pambula, Bendigo Bank, Bega Lions and Rotary Club of Bega.
Sixteen students also received academic awards.
Mumbulla Foundation scholarship winner Amelia Love, said the $1000 award will help with the purchase of text books for her Bachelor of Arts degree in Community Culture and Environment.
“I’d like to do a Masters of Teaching and become a primary school teacher,” the 22-year-old said first year student said.
“I’ve lived here all my life and I love it.”
Bega campus manager Sam Avitaia said the university is grateful for the continued support.
“Many of our students have multiple responsibilities as parents, students, employees and carers, so the support towards their studies means so much,” she said.
“The Bega campus has the most community scholarships of any UOW regional campus, Bega is just that kind of community.”
