Prizes and Scholarships ceremony

Prizes and Scholarships ceremony

15 May 2018

For all of our students here tonight who are recipients of prizes and scholarships, this is a time for you to reflect and be proud of your academic achievements. The award that you receive tonight is a testament to your hard work and dedication to your studies.

The ANU College of Business and Economics attracts some of the finest students from across the globe. The awarding of the prizes and scholarships are an expression of our commitment to providing a world-class education to the best and brightest minds, and supporting them through to success with life changing scholarships.

At the annual prizes and scholarships ceremony, on Thursday 10 May, some of our exceptional and well deserved students were recognised. We congratulate the 150 scholarship recipients and the 50 award winners for their accomplishments.

Professor Steven Roberts, the interim dean at the College of Business and Economics congratulated the proud recipients, their family & friends with words of commendations.

“For all of our students here tonight who are recipients of prizes and scholarships, this is a time for you to reflect and be proud of your academic achievements. The award that you receive tonight is a testament to your hard work and dedication to your studies.”

Rhianna Hampton-de Vries, this years’ D Brownbill Family Scholarship recipient shared her experience with everyone at the event.

“Coming from a small town in Blue Mountains, my journey to ANU has been quite a climb. Receiving the D Brownbill scholarship has been an invaluable aid in regards to financial pressure. I am absolutely honoured to have received the award and to be attending the Australian National University in general. Scholarships like this really help make attending University an achievable goal and financially possible. I would like to say an enormous thank you to Mr Brownbill and everyone who has helped me get to where I am today.”

The college congratulates every student who has been awarded prize or scholarship this year, and wishes luck to them for their future endeavours.
