Kirra recognised for academic achievement at UniSA
Fourth year Exercise Physiology student Kirra Dyer was recently presented with two scholarships at the UniSA Scholarships and Grants ceremony. The Irene and David Davy Scholarship for Advancement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education is awarded to students in their final year of an undergraduate program and awarded on the basis of academic merit.
Her second scholarship, the Gladys Elphick Memorial Scholarship is awarded to students studying within the School of Health Sciences. Gladys Elphick MBE was a highly respected member of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community of South Australia and in her honour an anonymous donor provided a bequest to the University to fund a scholarship in support of an Indigenous student.
