Aquinas College resident Louise Thomas, 17, is one of two students at the University of Adelaide to receive the prestigious Vice- Chancellor's Scholarship. Louise, who is from Manoora in the Clare Valley, is in her first year of study in a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical and Sports). "I was interested in the course in my last two years of high school. Before then I had no idea what I wanted to do," Louise said. The scholarship is funded by donations from alumni and the University community and does not require an application. Valued at $5000 per year for the duration of the course, recipients are selected on academic merit and financial need, with at least one scholarship a year being awarded to a student from a remote or rural area. For Louise, finding out she had the scholarship made it a lot easier to move to the city. "The scholarship is enabling me to concentrate more on my studies without having to worry so much about the financial side of moving away from home and studying at university," she said. "It's been a great help as accommodation fees are one of the major costs moving down to the city." Laura has been an active and respected member of the Aquinas College community as she has helped out at weekly liturgical Masses and participated in a number of inter-college sports such as hockey, cricket, football and athletics and has been active in the College Outreach Program. She collected for the Red Shield Appeal, raised money for the Heart Kids Foundation and has given blood. Louise won the Fr J.M. McInerney Scholarship as the first year Aquinas student with the best academic results in semester one last year.
