Jared Pritchard Memorial Scholarship - Andrew van Gelderen

2021 Recipient | Andrew van Gelderen | Jared Pritchard Memorial Scholarship

Andrew van GelderenJared Pritchard lived at New College for four years but very sadly passed away in December 2010.

In honour of Jared's creative talent, this scholarship is awarded to a student who will contribute to the creative and performing arts in the College community.

Andrew moved from Palmerston, NT to study a Bachelor of Arts and Media. He has received this scholarship because he is a keen creative writer.

It was this scholarship that convinced Andrew to come to New College in the first place:

I was strongly considering it but I hadn’t fully decided. The scholarship made the decision much easier because it gave me the security of knowing I could live at College for at least a year.
