Wanganui Education Trust scholarships were presented to Sinead Pugh (Bachelor of Computer Graphic Design), Tairongo Hauwaho (Certificate in Contemporary Music Performance) and Tracey Ihaia (Bachelor of Nursing).

Bachelor of Fashion student Georgina Steven and Chris Van Klink Bachelor of Computer Graphic Design were each awarded an H & A Design and Print scholarship.

Five students were each awarded an Arthur Wheeler Leedstown Trust scholarship. The successful students were Aroha Te Huia (Certificate in Mental Health), Alison Biggs (Bachelor of Nursing), Virginia Larsen (Certificate in Beauty Services), Teri-Wai Eruera

UCOL Deputy Chief Executive Academic Bonnie Dewart says she is grateful UCOL is able to connect with organisations and individuals to offer students scholarships and awards. “I would like to extend a thank you to each donor. These students no doubt have aspirations to contribute to their communities so it is great for them to have this support during their studies.”
