Geoff Rasmussen Scholarship | 2018 Beneficiary
The Geoff Rasmussen Scholarship Fund is pleased to announce Jade House as its 2018 beneficiary.
Jade was officially recognised and introduced at a small event recently to acknowledge her success and thank supporters of the Geoff Rasmussen Scholarship Fund.
Azure Capital is a foundation supporter of the Geoff Rasmussen Scholarship Fund established by the Rasmussen family (Bronwyn, Sami, Sophie and Josh) in memory of Geoff, a co-founder of Azure Capital.
Geoff was dedicated to improving the lives of others and had great respect for the value of education in facilitating personal and professional growth. The Geoff Rasmussen Scholarship Fund established in his name embodies those same values that Geoff championed and supports an outstanding individual in their undergraduate studies at UWA including professional mentoring. Preference is given to candidates who have been through or are experiencing significant challenges in their lives.
Jade is originally from Australind and attended Manea Senior College before gaining direct entry into Medicine at UWA through her hard work and outstanding Year 12 ATAR results. Whilst Jade is excited to be the first in her family to attend university, this has meant that at 17 years of age she has had to leave home and move to the city. The Geoff Rasmussen Scholarship will help Jade with costs associated with moving away from home to study and will allow her to focus on what is important to her – studying medicine.
Jade’s interest in helping others and drive to succeed is something that Geoff would have greatly admired and the selection committee was particularly impressed by.
Azure Capital is very proud to be supporting the Rasmussen family’s continued efforts to change lives through the Geoff Rasmussen Scholarship Fund.
