She has been awarded the Vice Chancellor’s Elite Scholarship at Bond University for the commencement of her Bachelor of Business and Commerce dual undergraduate degree in 2016.
As a Vice Chancellor’s Elite Scholar, Emily is entitled to 100% off her tuition for the entirety of her dual degree, which should take 2 to 3 years to complete.
The scholarship round attracted over 700 applications offering candidates the opportunity of interviews. Emily was one of 70 students selected to participate in second round interviews with a panel of three representatives eager to learn more about her.
Impressing the panellists in her hour long interview, Emily was then chosen to attend the Vice-Chancellor’s Elite Scholarship Selection Weekend at the university during the September school holidays.
Emily is one of only 12 candidates awarded the scholarship: an outstanding achievement and just reward for her commitment to studies to date.
“In the future I aspire to pursue a career in big business, specifically in economics,” said Emily.
“I have a real passion for economics and the way in which people connect and interlock together to create a unique and complex environment. I enjoy understanding networks and the human brain and how each of us interacts with each other based upon our emotions, experiences and logic.”
“Having grown up in rural Queensland I can foresee a future that will have some form of a link with that of the land,” she said.
Emily looks forward to immersing herself in the Bond University culture and is more than ready to embrace her tertiary studies with the peace of mind she has full financial commitment from the university.
