Wanda Henry Endowment

Since 2013, the Wanda Henry Scholarship in Photonics has been awarded to outstanding ANU undergraduates of physics and engineering to promote and assist their study of photonics.

During their undergraduate education and starting their careers, each of these young scientists are nurtured towards making unique contributions to ongoing innovation and discovery.

Supports the Wanda Henry Scholarship in Photonics

Photonics has grown rabidly in its research, teaching and applications in society, as a consequence it was decided to integrate the Wanda Henry Prize into and the more prestigious award, the Wanda Henry Scholarship in Photonics. The inaugural Scholarship commenced in 2013 and was awarded to Benjamin Courtney-Barrer.
