Four Eurobodalla students have had their lives enriched by science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Year 12 graduates Emily Kinnane (Batemans Bay High School), Curtis Dunne (Moruya High School), Ted Humphrys (St Peter’s Anglican College) and Kye Oxley-Garnett (Carroll College) are going to continue their STEM studies at university – and have received $2000 each to do so.
The scholarships are an initiative of Southern Phone. Managing Director David Joss says it’s important to support young people who are passionate about pursuing STEM studies and careers.
“In the Eurobodalla, we have an aging population and thus are running the risk of not having active participation in the digital economy in the future,” Mr Joss said.
“By supporting the education of promising local students in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, we will help future proof regional Australia.”
