We are very proud to share that Year 10 student Manny Anason (pictured during his performance in Preshil’s 2022 school production of Chicago) has been awarded the Melbourne University Kwong Lee Dow Scholarship.
This scholarship gives Manny access to the Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Program, which is an academic enrichment program designed to support high-achieving Victorian Year 11 and Year 12 students.
This program offers students the opportunity to engage with peers and university lecturers in events and activities designed to support student growth and development to enhance their chances of success in Year 12.
Students who receive this scholarship are not only treated to several academic and personal development events but are also guaranteed a place in an undergraduate course as well as an overseas study scholarship.
To be eligible to receive this scholarship students must demonstrate academic excellence, a commitment to active citizenship, leadership and involvement in the community.
Manny has excelled in all these areas and it is a joy to see him being rewarded for this.
