Holly Skordou (Class of 2021) was awarded the prestigious Hansen Scholarship at The University of Melbourne in the presence of the Patron, Ms Jane Hansen AO and the Vice Chancellor, Professor Duncan Maskell.
The Hansen Scholarship is one of the most valuable undergraduate scholarships in the nation, valued at over $100,000.
Scholars receive a living allowance, mentoring and pastoral care, academic, cultural, career and other development opportunities. They reside in a purpose-built student residence, Little Hall, which opened in 2021.
Little Hall is a key element to the Hansen Scholarship Program and was made possible by a $30 million gift from Jane Hansen and Paul Little through their foundation. It features 669 bedrooms, multi-purpose study rooms, a cinema, a gymnasium, a rooftop terrace garden, a cafe and wi-fi throughout.
