Jenny Liney Tertiary Scholarship

The annual scholarship of up to $5,000 supports students from the Eurobodalla who start or continue tertiary studies in a field related to the natural sciences. This could include botany, horticulture, conservation, or environmental studies.

The scholarship recognises the contribution of the Late Jenny Liney OAM to the development and maintenance of the Garden's Wallace Herbarium. Jenny worked untiringly as voluntary coordinator of the Herbarium over many years. It continues as an important scientific collection of specimen plants from the region.
