Congratulations to Heather Collins, the 2022 recipient of the Tall Foundation Scholarship in Classics.
The Scholarship, funded by the Tall Foundation, provides financial support of $5,000 to students who are undertaking research in the fields of Classics and Ancient History.
Heather, who grew up in Tasmania, studied a Bachelor of Classical Studies and a Bachelor of International Security Studies at ANU, and is now completing Honours in Classics.
Her topic is on Lucan’s Bellum Civile, a Roman epic poem that portrays the civil war between Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great (49-45 BCE).
“Completing an Honours degree in Classics at ANU with a supervisor who is [as] reputable, knowledgeable, and generous with his time as Dr Caillan Davenport is irreplaceable in value,” says Heather.
“The skills and knowledge I gain undertaking this study will only build upon that which I accumulated throughout completing my undergraduate double degree.”
The Tall Foundation Scholarship in Classics is offered annually, with applications opening in December.
