Old Girl awarded prestigious scholarship

POSTED February 8 2024 , News, Old Girls

Congratulations to Old Girl, Emma Bond (’19), who has been awarded one of two Westpac Future Leaders Scholarships to support her studies and endeavours in the hydrogen industry.

The prestigious scholarship, which offers up to $120,000 in financial assistance, helps recipients explore leadership development opportunities and fund overseas study for up to six months.

Emma, who is currently studying a Master of Chemical Engineering at The University of Western Australia, is also a Fogarty Foundation Scholar and was a recipient of the St Mary’s Old Girls’ Association’s Fay Bailey Scholarship for Engineering, Science and Law.

Emma said that the Westpac Scholarship would help her to meet people pursuing a diverse range of passions and studies to make a difference in Australia.

“Hydrogen is a strong candidate to help decarbonise hard-to-abate industries around the world and my study and research aims to address the technical challenges these sectors face,” Emma told The University of Western Australia’s website.

“I am interested in how international dynamics are influencing the energy transition and hope to head to Germany to collaborate on technology development.”
