New scholarships on offer for 2014 included the Contact Course Scholarships, to encourage extramural students to participate on campus. Congratulations to Karee Boswell (Bachelor of Arts (Education)) and previous EXMSS Scholarship winner Carmel Hancock (Master of Arts (Psychology)), who made a commitment this year to travel to her block courses from the South Island to Palmerston North.
The EXMSS Scholarship Sub Committee congratulate all recipients and although the number of applications from members was small this year, the calibre of applicants was at a level that a decision was made to award all applicants based on the amount of funds available and to acknowledge and encourage extramural studies at Massey University.
EXMSS are also pleased to end the year on a good note in delivering scholarships to its members, who have stuck with EXMSS through thick and thin over the past year and a half. Thank you to the Trustees of the Extramural Student Support Trust (Steve Maharey, Anne Palmer and Tiri Porter), who approved the scholarship money to be released so that EXMSS members could still benefit from the funds held in the Trust for 2014.
EXMSS will endeavour to highlight the above recipients in further detail in the new year, as they are all worthy recipients who can offer encouragement and motivation for other students to continue to pursue their study goals into 2015 and beyond.
