Vicsport Scholarships Announced

In 2014, Vicsport members were provided with the opportunity to apply for a Masters scholarship with La Trobe Business School. The scholarship would support those individuals seeking to enrol in postgraduate study in 2015.

The initial plan had been to offer one $10,000 scholarship, but due to the quality of the applications, La Trobe Business School decided to offer four scholarships to the successful Vicsport members to the total value of $20,000.

The chosen individuals were seeking to develop their skillsets in order to further their professional development and career opportunities.

The Vicsport members chosen to receive the scholarships are as follows:

Mr Tom Madden

Manager at VicHealth, Stefan Gunn says he chose La Trobe’s Masters of Sport Management as he believes it provides the best combination of “high quality subject material, experienced and expert faculty staff, high calibre fellow students and networking opportunities as well as a flexible delivery model.”

“I’m delighted to receive this scholarship from Vicsport and La Trobe.”

Vicsport congratulates these members and looks forward to sharing future opportunities for our members to develop their professional skills and networks.
