As part of UON Scholars’ Week 2015, the Faculty of Business and Law held their annual Scholarships Celebration, which acknowledges the continued generous support of scholarship donors and celebrates the achievements of scholarship recipients in 2015.
The event brought together donors, recipients, their families and UON staff to mingle and discuss the difference scholarships make to the student experience. This years’ event was held at the Newcastle Art Gallery which suited the occasion, enabling all attendees to browse through the wonderful array of artworks on display.
The Faculty had over 60 students receive scholarships this year, with a majority attending on the evening. Each student went home with a certificate and had the opportunity to converse with their donor and fellow students. Scholarships were awarded to students studying a variety of disciplines, and for academic achievements, research projects and sport attainments.
