President of Council, Jane Peck and Head of College, Dr Jennifer McDonald welcomed 110 students, donors and guests to Syme Dining Hall for the 2018 UC Scholars Dinner on Wednesday 14 March.
Dr McDonald thanked those in attendance for their ongoing support of the UC Scholarship Program. 59 scholarships were allocated to 52 students in 2018, up from 37 scholarships to 35 students in 2017.
“I am so proud to work within this supportive community. We are grateful to have alumni and donors who show such a keen interest in our students by enabling access to UC through scholarships” said Dr McDonald.
“If was not for these scholarships that I have received, I would simply not be able to study at the VCA and live at UC – 3.5 hours away from my home town. Thank you so much to each and every one of you who provide the financial support which makes a tremendous difference for all of us students and our families.”
