Scholarship success for Coffs lads

TWO Coffs Harbour boys have won engineering scholarships to aid their studies at the University of New South Wales.

Luke Kogias and Andrew Robson are both former John Paul College students and were among 190 undergraduate engineering scholarships this year.

Luke, who is now studying Civil Engineering at UNSW, received a Leighton Holdings Limited Rural Undergraduate Scholarship which provides $10,000 tax-free per annum for four years.

“The scholarship allows me to transition from rural NSW to Sydney,” said a delighted Luke.

“It also means I can balance study with other activities and have some quality of life.”

Andrew received a Faculty of Engineering Rural Scholarship to study Mechanical Engineering. That particular scholarship provides $9500 tax-free per annum for four years.

“It's a big relief because it takes a lot of financial pressure off me. It means I can get into my studies more,” said Andrew.

The scholarship recognises the talent of the students.
