PINJARRA resident Corrina Gosby is among three WA high school students to be awarded a US$4000 scholarship by the Alcoa Foundation to support their tertiary education in 2017.
The competitive Alcoa Foundation Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program rewards students who are children of Alcoa employees that demonstrate excellence in leadership, academic achievement, volunteering and community service.
The three West Australian recipients were among hundreds of high school students globally who applied for the scholarships.
They intend to study at leading Australian universities in the fields of environmental science, civil engineering and biomedical and veterinary sciences.
“After I graduate, I would really like to make a difference to the Australian environment through conservation of our unique ecosystems and by creating a sustainable world in which people can diminish their carbon footprints on an individual level,” Corrina said.
