Congratulations to our 2020 Awards winners!
The ESU is pleased to announce the winners of awards in two categories that were offered in late 2020: the Junior Leadership Bursary and the Minor Project Grant.
Junior Leadership Bursary
The Junior Leadership Bursary is an ESU educational and community youth initiative which provides financial support to deserving students in regional Victoria to further develop their leadership capabilities.
In December 2020, a judging panel drawn from the ESU Council considered applications from secondary school students in regional Victoria for this bursary. As a result of the panel’s deliberations, we are pleased to announce Ben Okely of Shepparton as the inaugural winner (receiving a bursary of $1,500) and Abbey Lazenby of Nagambie as the runner-up (receiving a bursary of $750).

Minor Project Grant
The ESU's Project Grants provide financial support to individuals and organisations for projects that contribute to the appreciation and promotion of the heritage, culture, identity and fellowship of the English-speaking peoples. Successful applicants for the Minor Project Grant receive up to $2,000 for their project.
In January 2021, a judging panel drawn from the ESU Council and ESU members considered applications for the December round of the Minor Project Grant. As a result of the panel’s deliberations, we are pleased to announce Grace Blake of Adelaide as the inaugural recipient.
