Rotary Scholarship Recipient

03 March 2013

Recently Kristy Meiselbach, a Gunditjmara woman and former student of Assumption Colleges, was awarded with a scholarship from the Balwyn Rotary Club. In 2005 Rotary Club of Balwyn established a Scholarship for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Island students to study at an approved tertiary institution (TAFE, University or other approved institution) for a period of up to four years duration.

Kristy was one of seven finalists who were interviewed by a selection panel with the major criteria being “the person(s) for whom winning the Scholarship will make the greatest life changing experience”. Her scholarship was funded in conjunction with Balwyn Rotary and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and also the Higher Education and Skills Group within the Victorian Government.

Kristy is about to commence her studies in Biomedical Science at RMIT with the hope of continuing into a post-graduate course in Medicine.
