Mistrel commences studies at JCU with help from QCoal

Former Moranbah student Mistrel Fetzer Boegheim has kicked off her first year of Engineering and Earth Sciences studies at James Cook University in Townsville, with a helping hand from the QCoal Foundation.

As the recipient of this year’s QCoal Foundation Scholarship, Mistrel beat out a very competitive field of applicants to receive the support, valued at $10,000 per year for three years.

Upon receiving the scholarship, Mistrel explained that she was very honoured and grateful to have been selected.

“This opportunity means so much to my schooling and I’m so excited about the doors it opens for me,” she said.

QCoal Foundation looks to identify those students who not only excel in studies and extra-curricular activities, but recognise the challenges of rural and remote Queensland and plan to give back to those communities in their professional careers.

2018 is the third year the scholarship has been offered.  Applications for the 2019 scholarship will open on 1 October 2018.
