Young achievers’ hard work attracts rewards

For some students who are starting their courses at Charles Darwin University this year, last Thursday evening was special.

Vice-Chancellor’s prizes and Pro Vice-Chancellors’ scholarships were awarded to young high achievers, who graduated from high school in 2016, during ceremonies at Casuarina and Alice Springs campuses.

The Vice-Chancellor’s Prize for High Achievement is valued at $6000. 

The Pro Vice-Chancellors’ Scholarships are valued at up to $26,000. 

Both forms of scholarship are intended to encourage high-achieving NT students to complete their higher education in the NT. 

Recipients of the Vice-Chancellor’s prizes were: Marianna Diamandopoulos, Shannon Fuller, Joel Kennaway, Elliana Miles, Michael Pham and Ashley Smith.

Pro Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships in Engineering, Health, Science and the Environment were awarded to Thilini Pandithage and Jack Cartmer.

Pro Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships in Law, Education, Business and Arts were awarded to Netanya Lai and Kristina Mu.
