Adam Beare wins $12,000 USQ Scholarship

Thursday 13 Dec

Concordia Year 12 student Adam Beare is the successful recipient of a $12,000 USQ Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship. Adam plans to use the scholarship to assist with studying a three year course in Paramedicine at USQ.

A brigade secretary and rural firefighter with the Gowrie Little Plain Rural Fire Brigade, Adam has demonstrated a strong interest in working in emergency services.

He says he has wanted to be a paramedic for the past five years and studying Paramedicine over the next three years will be a dream come true.

Adam says the generous scholarship from USQ will be used for text books, uniforms and other pre-placement requirements for Paramedicine students, such as vaccinations. He will also use the money to assist with accommodation when he has placements.

Adam says he was very surprised when he received the letter from USQ advising him that he had been successful in winning the scholarship.

“I had initially applied for another scholarship worth $6,000 and thought I had a much better chance of receiving that one,” he said.

“I thought I would just throw my hat into the ring with the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship but never expected to receive it.”

After finishing his Year 12 studies at Concordia next month, Adam plans to spend a month in Germany instead of going to Schoolies.

Having studied German at Concordia, Adam is looking forward to exploring Frankfurt, Dusseldorf and Hamburg during his end of school trip.
