Last week I attended the Curtin University Spatial Sciences Department Prizegiving to present the Gaia Resources Scholarship. The scholarship is presented to the first year student with the highest TER score enrolled in the GIS programme.
This is the fifth year we have run scholarship and it was intended to encourage more high school students to consider enrolling in spatial sciences as we were concerned with the lack of graduates coming through. A number of our previous scholarship winners have also done causal work with us while they have been studying.
This years winner is Rebekah Daley, congratulations Rebekah!
Also at prizegiving our very first scholarship winner and now full-time employee Charlotte Plug received awards for
- Best Final Year Project
- Best Overall Graduate
Charlotte has been working with us right through her studies and after graduating at the end of last year is now with us full-time.
Well done Charlotte!
Prizegiving is a great opportunity to see who is coming through into our industry, experts tip though – Don’t calculate how old you were when the students were born, it makes you feel really old!
