Prizes and Awards


31 May 2011

More than 300 students, distinguished alumni, supporters, friends and family recently attended the Faculty's annual Scholars Reception. Prizes for high academic achievement and scholarships for undergraduate students were presented by the Chancellor and donors, to winners from across the Faculty's range of undergraduate degree programs. Distinguished alumni,Dr Brian Fisher AO PSM, BScAgr (Hons I) PhD Sydney, who had been awarded the prestigious degree of Doctor of Science in Agriculture (honoris causa) at the Faculty Graduation ceremony the same afternoon, also attended.

The Environmental Sustainability Scholarships for students in the Bachelor of Environmental Systems degree with a passion for agriculture and sustainability were awarded for the first time. Those students who had graduated the same afternoon also joined the reception with their family and friends to celebrate their achievements.

The Prizes and Scholarships program would not be possible without the support of donations and industry sponsorships and the Faculty is extremely grateful for the support provided to the program.

Congratulations to all our Prize Winners and new Graduates!
