Congratulations to the 2020 UWA Fogarty Scholars
The Fogarty Foundation were proud to welcome the 2020 UWA Fogarty Scholars to the program at the recent Welcome Breakfast. The event was an opportunity to meet and welcome the new Scholars and reconnect with existing Scholars, Alumni and key UWA members of faculty.
Annie Fogarty, Executive Chair of Fogarty Foundation, and Prof Simon Biggs, UWA Deputy Vice-Chancellor, formally welcomed all to the year, and in particular the 2020 Scholars.
Ten new scholarships were awarded to the State’s highest-achieving students to join the 2020 program. Scholars are selected based on academic excellence and outstanding achievements in leadership, community involvement, the arts, sport, and enterprise. They join a growing cohort of 158 Fogarty Scholars and Alumni.
This years scholars are Lachlan McDonald (Perth Modern School), Lucie O’Sullivan (Presbyterian Ladies College), Winifred Taylor-Williams (St Mary’s Anglican), Emma Bond (St Mary’s Anglican), Hannah Bowden (Georgiana Molloy), Rana Ibrahim (Perth Modern School), James Barton (Shenton College), Luke Osborne (Guildford Grammar), Patrick Morton (Lumen Christi), and Alexander van Hoek (Scotch College).
The scholarship program will offer even greater opportunities in 2020, with the introduction of the Scholars Enterprise Investment Program, a $15million investment program to fund next generation, technology focused enterprises led by UWA Fogarty Scholars and Alumni. This will support the Scholars and build their networks, while enhancing WA –wide support for the next generation of enterprises, growing the number of jobs and diversity of businesses across WA and Australia.
