We warmly congratulate the six students from Damascus who recently received a scholarship through the University of Notre Dame School of Medicine to attend a scholarship program in Sydney during the July school holiday. Twelve students from Ballarat were successful in obtaining this scholarship, which allows students to travel to Sydney for a day to experience life as a medical student. All six Damascus students who applied for the scholarship were successful, which is a wonderful effort. This is the third year that students from Damascus have participated in the scholarship program and the reports from previous years have been very positive. This scholarship opportunity is generally offered each year and students are notified by email in around March about how they can apply. We wish Lily, Brooke, Bonita, Ashleigh, Sydney and Sarah all the best for their day as a medical student!
