The family and friends of Leo Cooper-White, together with the UTAS Foundation, are seeking support for the Leo Cooper-White Memorial Scholarship Appeal which will establish a scholarship at the University of Tasmania’s School of Visual and Performing Arts (SVPA). Leo was a third year student at the UTAS School of Visual and Performing Arts. On 18 March 2011, Leo’s life was cut short in a tragic accident. We are aiming to raise $30,000 which the UTAS Foundation has agreed to match dollar for dollar for a total of $60,000, to endow an annual scholarship in Leo’s name.
No early alumnus of the UTAS School of Medicine needs an introduction to Arthur Cobbold. From 1964, when he arrived as Foundation Professor of Physiology, to his retirement 21 years later – with 13 of those years as Dean of Medicine – he very much shaped the School and the lives of many of those in it.
It is a fitting memorial to the late Professor Cobbold that an annual lecture on contemporary medical issues will again influence medical thinking in Tasmania and that the support to endow this lecture in perpetuity will come from those who were themselves most closely influenced by his work and mentorship.
2013 marks the centenary of the founding of Hobart High School and its successor institutions, Hobart Matriculation College and Hobart College. To celebrate the significant milestone in educational attainment for Tasmania, the Old Hobartian Association has launched an appeal to former students and to the wider community to raise the capital funds needed to create a perpetual scholarship. The Old Hobartian Centenary Scholarship from 2013 onwards will annually support students graduating from Hobart College to study in any discipline at the University of Tasmania.
The late Dr Judith Homeshaw was a loved and respected member of staff in the School of Government. Family, friends and colleagues have launched an appeal to raise funds to create an annual scholarship in her name for a student entering an honours course at UTAS.

The inaugural scholarship will be awarded to a student commencing study at honours, masters or research level in the 2012 academic year.
