CSU scholarship presentation ceremonies across central west


Sunday, 19 Jun 2016

The 2016 scholarship ceremonies at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Bathurst, Orange and Dubbo will honour the memory and generosity of two passionate advocates for regional higher education.

The annual ceremonies celebrate the academic achievements and endeavours of current students enrolled in arts, business, education, and science courses at CSU.

This year the events have special significance as CSU Foundation Trust welcomes the receipt of a bequest of over $3 million from Carole and Stan Droder. They will be joined by other local businesses and organisations in presenting scholarships to deserving students to assist them in their studies.

The ceremonies will be held at CSU in Dubbo at 6pm Tuesday 24 May; at CSU in Orange at 10am Wednesday 25 May; and at CSU in Bathurst at 11.30am Friday 27 May.

CSU Foundation administers over 300 scholarships annually, and in 2016 more than $1.2 million in scholarships will be awarded across all CSU campuses to help students reach their full potential.

The Foundation recognises that by giving rural and regional students in Australia fair access to higher education, CSU can develop professionals who have experience in regional areas and further afield, which will help them to maintain and develop healthy local economies and vibrant communities.
