Students’ study aided by Wunsch trust

§ April 30th, 2005 § Filed under Uncategorized Comments Off on Students’ study aided by Wunsch trust

THE Priscilla Sandys Wunsch Trust has awarded its annual scholarships to Otago University. 

The scholarships were established by a trust when Priscilla Sandys Wunsch died in 2000.

Ms Wunsch studied at Otago University in the 1940s and her wish was to help students with hardship who might otherwise be unable to study at university.

The trust has now assisted 128 students from Taranaki to study at Otago University with scholarships amounting to more than $2,500,000.

The annual awards dinner for the students will be held at the Plymouth International Hotel at 6.30-7pm on Thursday, December 3.
