New Roseworthy scholarship


A new scholarship will be available for undergraduate students at the Roseworthy Campus of the University of Adelaide from 2007.

This is the Trevor Dillon Agronomic Roseworthy Study Scholarship which recognises the immense contribution that Kadina-based agronomist Trevor Dillon has made to SA agriculture over five decades.

Details of the scholarship were announced by Dr Bruce Eastick at a dinner at Roseworthy in late February attended by Mr Dillon and 150 leaders in agriculture. Dr Eastick is chairman of Co-patrons of the Roseworthy Old Collegians Student and Campus Fund.

Roseworthy Old Collegians Association president, Mark Seeliger said the scholarship would assist Roseworthy students to study agronomy-based subjects from 2007.

"It will provide full residential accommodation on the Campus and meet other expenses for students not otherwise able to undertake this study," he said.

"More than $23,000 has already been raised for the scholarship fund and it is hoped to fund students on an on-going basis.

"Donations are tax deductible and forms are available from Joan Playford at the University of Adelaide, phone 8303 3692, fax 8303 5808."
