UCOL Wairarapa student Emma Warrington received the NZ Federation of Graduate Wellington Branch Second Chance Award at a ceremony in Wellington recently.

Emma is a second year Bachelor of Nursing student at UCOL’s Masterton campus. She started studying in 2012 gaining a Certificate in Introduction to Health Science and continued on to a Bachelor of Nursing the following year.

Emma is the single mum of two daughters aged 2 and 8.

The New Horizons for Women Trust organizes the awards each year to support education, innovation and research that benefits women.

The awards take the form of a $3000 grant that the recipients can spend to aid their studies.

The Second Chance awards are for women over the age of 27 years returning to education or training. The selection process considers the level of need, personal qualities and the likelihood of success.
