Year 12 student awarded a prestigious Bond University Scholarship

Year 12 student Grace Hamilton has been awarded a Bond University leadership scholarship to commence tertiary studies in 2021.

Grace has accepted an offer to study Bachelor of Journalism at Bond University next year, in combination with a Language and Culture degree, where she intends to continue her school studies in French and add Spanish as well.

“After visiting the Bond University stand at the tertiary expo last year, and hearing about their international internships, I was very motivated to apply to study there,” Grace says.

“Visiting the campus, taking a tour and then talking with the academic staff was a great experience. The campus and facilities are amazing and I really liked how flexible the study programs are.”

Dean of Studies, Mrs Rebecca Adamson said “Bond University only offers a limited number of scholarships each year to Australia’s best and brightest students, so we are very excited for Grace. She is a worthy recipient, chosen based on a list of merits, including academic ability, leadership skills, extensive community and extra-curricular involvement and her personal character.”

Grace was a Canterbury House Captain and Prefect in 2020, along with excelling in academic, service and co-curricular endeavours across her years of schooling at Canterbury. In particular, in 2020 she was a member of Cantabile, Canterbury’s renowned Choir, played ‘Firsts’ Basketball, Netball (where she was Captain) and Volleyball and was a member of the TAS Athletics Senior Girls Team.

In a statement, Bond University said they received a large number of applications from students across the country and competition for these prestigious awards was exceptionally strong.
