High achievers recognised

11 May 2022 | News

Georgia Hill was one of a group of high academic performers recognised last week.

The second-year Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology student performed well in her NCEA exams while at school and earned a Lincoln University Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship for Excellence.

She was one of six scholarship recipients, all at varying stages of their study careers, to be presented with certificates by Vice-Chancellor Professor Grant Awards in honour of their achievements. Four additional recipients were unable to attend. 

The scholarships are available each year to students who have gained high academic grades in NCEA level two or equivalent, and they cover the entire degree period.

Due to COVID restrictions, the event was the first of its kind to be held in two years. 

Applications are open for the scholarship until 15 August.
