Vic students study hard, win money

Nine Vic students have been awarded top doctoral scholarships by the Tertiary Education Commission in the latest round of awards, from a total of fifty nationwide.


Vic’s haul of sweet government money totalled almost $1 million, from the $4.7 million distributed altogether.

Nine ‘Bright Future Top Achiever Doctoral Scholarships’ in the first round is a significant improvement on last year, when only eight were awarded to Vic students in the whole year.

Vice-Chancellor Pat Walsh said: “[This] is a significant achievement … and not only reflects Victoria’s standing as one of New Zealand’s leading research universities but also the efforts of the Scholarships team in the Office of Research & Postgraduate Studies.”

The scholarship recipients are: Bradley Anderson, Carl Benton, Gareth Prosser, Robyn Langlands, Lauren Christie, Susan Liebich, Terence Green, John Dennison and Anna Smaill.
