Jess McLennan Fund

Jess McLennan graduated from Charles Sturt University Bachelor of Nursing in 2014. Jess then went on to work in her regional community as an emergency and critical care nurse at Wangaratta Hospital.

Tragically Jess passed away in June 2016 after a car accident on her way to work. Heavily involved in her local community especially through sport, Jess was remembered as determined, energetic and someone keen to help others.

Her loss was deeply felt in the community.

The Jess McLennan Memorial Scholarship will be provided annually to assist the successful recipient with the costs associated with their education. This will allow a Charles Sturt student to devote due diligence to their studies and realise their dream for a career in Nursing.

Selection will be based on the student’s demonstrated sustained commitment to their studies and whose efforts best reflect Jessica’s passion for community and the assisting of others.

The goal of the fund set up in Jess’s memory is to extend her determined and helpful spirit in supporting likeminded individuals to meet their educational goals in nursing.

The initial goal for the establishment of a scholarship is $35,000. The appeal is ongoing and to help us establish, maintain and later increase the value of the scholarship, we need your help.

With your help we will ensure Jessica’s legacy continues through the work of our nurses of the future.
