Lucy Kirk of Gowrie wins an inaugural Tuckwell Scholarship

By johnboy - 12 July 2013 0

The ANU has announced the first recipients of what they hope will become the Rhodes Scholarships of the South, the Graham & Louise Tuckwell Foundation scholarships:

The scholars will receive $20,000 a year for the length of a single or double undergraduate degree as well as ongoing academic and career mentoring. They will live in student accommodation and be encouraged to pursue community service and extracurricular activities.

The Tuckwell Scholarship Program was established by ANU alumnus Graham Tuckwell and his wife Louise in February. Their $50 million gift to the University was the largest ever donation to an Australian university by an Australian citizen.

Erindale College’s Lucy Kirk was the only ACT Student to take the prize.
