The Joy Peters and Reena Walia Diversity Scholarship will support first year students who identify as women and who are experiencing financial or other disadvantages to study Engineering and/or Computer Science at ANU. The Award has been provided by Joy Peters and Reena Walia to recognise and acknowledge their parents whose encouragement and sacrifice made it possible for them to attend ANU.
The Donors seek to support a diverse College and University student community representative of the populations from which those students come and to which they may ultimately serve.
