Bruce Gordon Scholarship announces 2018 recipient
University of Wollongong journalism student Victoria Ellis receives WIN Network scholarship.
Journalism student Victoria Ellis has been awarded the 2018 Bruce Gordon Scholarship for Journalism.
The scholarship, which carries $10,000, is designed to relieve the financial burden often placed on students as well as giving them intern experience with the WIN Network.
Offered to University of Wollongong students in their third year of a Journalism degree, it is now in its third year.
Ellis, a second-year Bachelor of Journalism student, was raised in the rural town of Walla Walla, NSW.
“Growing up on a farm and coming from a small, tight knit community, I am passionate about advocating for rural issues and giving regional Australia a voice,” she said.
She will commence her placement with WIN News Illawarra in 2019.
