  • About the donor

    Nicola Andrews

    Made possible through a donation from Glynda Andrews who wishes to honour and memorialise her daughter, Nicola Andrews. Nicola was an alumna and student of the University, having completed a Bachelor of Production (2010) and Bachelor of Science (2015).

    Nicola was a talented and well-known lighting designer before discovering a passion for biomedical engineering which was partially inspired by the deaths of both her father and brother to cancer. She was particularly interested in the intersection of biology, medicine and engineering and hoped to use her passion to make significant contributions to the field of Biomedical Engineering.

    Nicola was enrolled to continue with a Master of Engineering (Biomedical) before she died in a mountaineering accident in New Zealand in December 2015.

What are the benefits?

A total of $20,000 paid in half-yearly instalments for the normal, full-time duration of the recipients course.
