CSU Foundation scholarship ceremony in Dubbo


Wednesday, 8 Aug 2018

A Charles Sturt University (CSU) Foundation Scholarship presentation ceremony will be held in Dubbo on Wednesday 8 August.

Director of CSU Advancement Ms Sarah Ansell said the ceremony is one of five held to award $1.3 million in scholarships to 300 students across the University community.

“The scholarship ceremonies are an important opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our students, the generosity of our donors, and the support and commitment of our local communities,” Ms Ansell said.

“Scholarships provide access and opportunity for our students, ensuring they receive an education which will in turn allow them to bring knowledge, skills and social capital back to their own communities.”

Ms Ansell noted that the scholarship ceremonies were also a way for the University to recognise the significance of the donors.

“Their scholarships are vital in alleviating some of the barriers to higher education and ensuring students can concentrate on their studies and enjoy an enriching student experience,” Ms Ansell said.

The scholarship presentation ceremony will be held on Wednesday 8 August from 6pm at the lecture theatre (room 202) at CSU in Dubbo.
