Another year, another scholarship (or two!)
Sometime in the middle of last year, which was a very hazy year, I spent a week frantically writing a scholarship application. How you can spend a whole week on one application still escapes me, but I swear it is true. I waited patiently for months, and eventually the Hon Mark Butler (some Minister) apparently agreed to “show me the money” on December 14th. They say there’s no such thing as a free lunch but I beg to differ. Thank you National Health and Medical Research Council for my Postgraduate scholarship for three years, and apologies Australian Postgraduate Award people. For some unknown reason one cannot accept two scholarships so I had to “regretfully decline”. Yippee-yay!
