In 1964, College fees were the equivalent of $648, now they’re $30,000 a year. For a student this is pretty hard. But I’ve been able to make ends meet due to a College scholarship funded by a past student valued at half the yearly fees. I can now pursue my dream and study Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne, and hopefully one day find a cure for malaria! Thank you!
The plan was to stay at St. Hilda’s College as a resident tutor for one-year. I stayed for seven. After finishing my Master of Engineering, in 2013 I enrolled into PhD research in the fields of earthquake and structural engineering. It has been quite a journey, but I could not have got through it without the support I received from the College. I was also fortunate to be awarded the Pam Todd Scholarship twice, which helped support experimental research outside of my PhD. I was also fortunate to receive a Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship, which will fund a one-year postdoctoral research programme working in Switzerland at the Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics laboratory. Thank you St Hilda's community!
