Each year MUC, through its Mission Portfolio, provides a grant of $500 to assist a worthy young recipient in their education. The award is made possible by a donation from the Aumann family in memory of Dorothy Aumann. Dorothy was a much loved and revered member of Templestowe UC who always supported young people and would be delighted that these funds are helping a student to further their studies.
A number of very worthy applications were received for this year’s award, which has been made to a student from the country who has completed her BA and is beginning study for a Masters in Social Work. She will be supporting herself with part-time work, but the Aumann Grant, along with a small additional scholarship, will assist her in reaching her goal.
