The Zonta Club of Bendigo is inviting applications from central Victorian females who have recently completed Year 12, and who will be enrolling in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics degree in 2018. 

The Bendigo Club’s Ann Horrocks STEM scholarship is valued at $750 per year for two years of successful study. 

The winner of the inaugural scholarship in 2016 was Bree Mellberg. 

Bree was studying a Bachelor of Science degree at La Trobe in Bendigo, majoring in biomedical science.

In 2013, as a Junior World Champion in diving, Bree suffered an accident on a trampoline that left her wheelchair-bound. She dedicated herself to rehabilitation and returned to university studies after 18 months, winning the Zonta scholarship in 2016. 

 Zonta’s scholarship assisted Bree to pursue her insatiable curiosity and fascination about the world and especially the human body.
