A young Moorabool resident has been awarded a scholarship to help pursue commitment to learning.
Winter Greet hails from Mollongghip and has commenced her studies in a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne, following her achievement as 2019s recipient for the Ballan & District Community Bank Branch Scholarship for first-time university students.
Ms Greet said she was “very excited” to find out she had received the scholarship, and was encouraged by some of the staff at the Ballan branch to apply for the grant, as they told her that “not many people had applied in the past before.”
Ms Greet’s decision paid off, receiving $2000 to contribute toward her studies, accommodation fees and general expenses for the first year of her degree.
As for her career goals, Ms Greet hopes to continue her academic journey with “a postgraduate degree in International Relations or Political Journalism.”
The Bendigo Bank Scholarship is for students living in rural and regional Australia, and is for first-time, first-year university students who wish to study full time.
