Charlie Sofe receives his award of excellence from Student Success Manager Jim Dragna

Second year Civil Engineering student Charlie Sofe from Samoa received the 2014 award of excellence at the UC NZ Aid celebration event earlier this month. Check out all the photos on the UC student’s NZ Aid site.

NZ Aid is a scholarship scheme offered to candidates from nominated developing countries around the world. UC currently has around 100 students funded under this scheme studying a wide range of subjects and degrees with particular focus on the developmental needs of their home country.

Half of UC’s NZ Aid Scholars fall into the New Zealand Pacific Scholarships (NZPS) category.  Each year, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade gives an award to UC’s highest NZPS academic performer over the previous academic year. Charlie is the recipient of this award for 2014.

Charlie hopes to become a Civil Engineering consultant, contributing to the continuing development of Samoa’s infrastructure.

Congrats Charlie! And in honour of Samoan Language Week, fa’amalo!
