Charles Sturt University is saying thank you to the Zonta Club of Orange for its ongoing support of students pursuing health-related degrees at Charles Sturt through the Jill Salter Memorial Scholarship.
Jill Salter was a radiographer and member of the Zonta Club of Orange, who tragically was killed in a motor vehicle accident on the Mitchell Highway in 1988 on her way to work in Bathurst.
In honour of Jill’s memory, her family established this scholarship through the Zonta Club of Orange.
The scholarship is worth $3,000 and is available for continuing students who are completing any health-related undergraduate degree at Charles Sturt Orange through the Charles Sturt Faculty of Science and Health.
CEO of the Charles Sturt University Foundation Ms Sarah Ansell thanked Jill’s family and the Zonta Club of Orange for their generous and ongoing support of the University.
“Jill’s passing was an unimaginable tragedy,” Ms Ansell said.
“She was greatly respected by her peers and had a lasting impact on patients and all those around her.
“We are very grateful and honoured that Jill’s memory can live on through this scholarship support in her name.”
Ms Frances Young from the Zonta Club of Orange said it was important to the club to continue to pay tribute to Jill through the scholarship.
“Jill was a much-loved member of the club who gave so much that she became president soon after she joined,” she said.
“We will always remember her, and this scholarship is a way we can continue to encourage health students to maximise their studies to hopefully one day contribute to health care the way Jill did.”
Applications are open for the Jill Salter Memorial Scholarship and close on Wednesday 2 February 2022.
