Gulgong local, Meg Kelly, has been awarded the 2020 Mudgee Region Community Scholarship to assist her in pursing her path in tertiary education.

The University of Wollongong has awarded the Bachelor of Nursing student, with the support of Mid-Western Regional Council, which provides the student with $2,500 of financial assistance for the duration of their degree.

Meg intends to use the scholarship to complete her educational journey and reach her career goals.

UOW Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Wellings, says he was proud of the work that UOW and the Council continue to do to support local communities in the Mudgee region.

He also says “UOW has been committed to rural and regional health for many years and supports local students by encouraging them to pursue a career in healthcare.”

Meg is planning to specialise in the field of radiology after completing her degree in nursing.
