Students, families celebrate success

La Trobe University students and their families will celebrate success as 120 prizes and scholarships are presented at the Bendigo Campus Prize Ceremony on Wednesday 23 July.

Professor Richard Speed, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Regional), La Trobe University, will present the awards to students in the presence of representatives from each of the University's five faculties. The ceremony also brings the students together with the donors of their prizes and scholarships.

Rob Stephenson, Head of Campus, Bendigo, congratulated students on their success, saying it demonstrated their capacity to excel at the highest level in a university environment.

'Undertaking a tertiary qualification is an investment in a life outcome. The reward for this investment is the opportunity to deliver the skills acquired during studies to a range of activities throughout our region, thus extending the benefits across our health, commerce and industry communities,' he said.

'La Trobe's Bendigo graduates will continue to have an impact in fields as diverse as education, arts, science and engineering.

'The ceremony also acknowledges the generous support of our prize and scholarship donors, who lend their support to our students, extending them a helping hand and investing in both their future and that of our region,' Mr Stephenson said.

'Many of our awards, bursaries, prizes and scholarships have been made possible by the generosity of prize and scholarship donors and we are really pleased to be able to facilitate their connection with our students.'

The Bendigo Campus Prize Ceremony will take place at The Capital Theatre from 6.15 pm on Wednesday 23 July.
