There were thousands of submissions and it was a privilege to read so many accounts of determination, grit and optimism in the face of adversity. The strength of the submissions was so great, in fact, that we were unable to single out one sole winner, and therefore have given first place to two excellent students, both of whom will receive $5,000 each.
We will be in touch via email with all winners within the next 5 days.
*We apologise for the slight delay with our announcement.
Nigel Blythe-Tinker Scholarship
Nigel Blythe-Tinker is the Executive Chairman of VGW. Nigel has enjoyed an impressive career. For the best part of 30 years at the top of some of the world’s largest companies – across the UK and Europe – Nigel now turns his attention to Australia. For Nigel this is an opportunity to give back to the community.
Throughout his work – the multiple boards he sits on, his youth mentorship and the executive leadership events he leads – Nigel works hard to pass on to the next generation the lessons and insights learned over his illustrious career. Therefore Nigel set up the Nigel Blythe-Tinker Scholarship.
The Nigel Blythe-Tinker Scholarship was created to help US students who despite having faced challenges and hardships in their lives, have overcome these and gone on to thrive and prosper.
