The Tribune (NZ) - - SAVOUR -

The Jaycee Trust Trav­el­ling Fel­low­ship Scheme has granted the 2016 year schol­ar­ships to two wor­thy re­cip­i­ents, Ni­cole Cameron and Me­gan Somerville.

Ni­cole will use her award to at­tend the Global Congress of AYA (Ado­les­cent and Young Adults) Can­cer in Ed­in­burgh. The Global Congress is the first truly global event in AYA Can­cer and will dis­cuss in­ter­na­tional strate­gies and ideas for im­prov­ing sta­tis­tics for ado­les­cents and young peo­ple, how to ad­dress and re­duce men­tal health con­cerns and ways to im­prove treat­ment ad­her­ence. Me­gan will use her award to travel to Melbourne to com­plete the Cer­tifi­cate in Pae­di­atric Nutri­tion and Di­etet­ics. Me­gan says that the project will help to in­form re­gional best prac­tice guide­lines for fam­i­lies and chil­dren with food al­ler­gies. The Fel­low­ship Scheme en­ables young peo­ple from all walks of life with the po­ten­tial for lead­er­ship to un­der­take spe­cial projects or study be­yond New Zealand by grant­ing up to $5,000 to­wards travel costs (a to­tal of up to $10,000 per fund­ing round). In­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the 2017 Jaycee Trust Trav­el­ling Fel­low­ship will be avail­able on the Coun­cil web­site from mid-2017.
