Three Monash University students received the Tim McArdle memorial bursary at a presentation at the Warragul Country Club last week.

The bursary is made available annually by a local committee to students studying health/science degrees at Monash University in memory of local doctor Tim McArdle who was killed while riding his bicycle in Warragul on September 9, 2002.

Bursaries were presented to Jacqueline Inches of Chelsea who is studying a bachelor of psychology, Michaela Rutherford of Darnum who is studying a bachelor of medicine and doctor of medicine and Georgia Durrand of Warragul who is studying a bachelor of biomedical science. Each bursary was $2500.

The event was attended by representatives of Monash University, the local committee, the McArdle family and the bursary recipients.

Committee chairman Cleo Sahhar said the bursary had been established soon after Tim’s death and raised close to $90,000.

He said the fund, which was administered by Monash, had awarded 25 bursaries to the value of $73,000.
