The College is pleased to announce that Monique Tran and Emily Bradley have been accepted into the Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Program for 2016.

The Kwong Lee Dow Scholars Program is an academic enrichment program designed to support high achieving Victorian students. It was open to current Year 10 students who have achieved excellent results and who have been involved in a leadership role within the College.  Up to five students per school can be nominated into this program.

The College would like to acknowledge all five high achieving Year 10 students on their nomination to be members of this fantastic program.  Well done girls.

While at Thomas Carr College Monique and Emily, as Kwong Lee Dow Scholars:

  • receive an approved borrower card allowing them access to any of the University of Melbourne’s libraries
  • participate in dedicated KLYDS academic enrichment events and key University events
  • meet like-minded students from diverse backgrounds through on-campus activities
