This scholarship pays tribute to the work of Lisa Malone, former resident of Wodonga and student in Social Work at La Trobe University. Lisa’s life was devoted to helping people in need within Australia and overseas. Her humanitarian work took her to Alice Springs where she worked with handicapped aboriginal children and also to El Salvador, Southern Mexico and Guatemala. Lisa was working with the United Nations as part of an aid team providing education programs for Mayan people when she and seven others died in a helicopter crash in 1998.

La Trobe University, with the support of the Albury-Wodonga community, The Border Mail and the Hume Bank established the scholarship to commemorate Lisa’s life by recognising and supporting others who are also dedicated to the highest humanitarian ideals.
