“The Steelers are very proud of our association with the University of Wollongong College,” said Steelers Deputy Chairman, Sean O’Connor.

“We are going into our fourth year now. Throughout that period the scholarship has assisted some of our future academic and sporting stars.”

First launched in 2018, past winners include Teagan Berry (2020, Diploma of Nursing] and Melissa Spero [2019, Cert IV in Fitness].

“The scholarship is ideal for outstanding young people like Teagan who have a career pathway they want to pursue,” says UOW College General Manager, Felix Lanceley.

“We’re in fitness, we’re in nursing so the scholarship program aligns perfectly with the Illawarra Rugby League.”
