In memorial of Jarrah Young, a past IH resident
The scholarship exists to encourage and enable residents to participate in college life, encourage others to participate, be compassionate towards others and achieve academically.
This memorial scholarship was established by family, friends, and members of the IH community in memory of past IH resident Jarrah Young who passed away in 2012. Jarrah lived at International House in 2003 and 2004. During this time she had a profound impact on peoples’ lives and made some of her best friends. In 2003 she was heavily involved in college activities, receiving a Half Blue Award for Sport, an International House Achievement Award for Cross-Cultural Activities and was recognised for her significant contribution to Soirée.
In 2004 she took on a greater leadership role as she juggled the roles of A Tower Senior Resident, ICC Vice President and O-Week Convenor with her dear friend Bri Leo. Jarrah gave her all to her community and friendships at her new home. Tragically, Jarrah died on February 8, 2012, at the age of 26, when her safari tour bus overturned while travelling through Namibia. So as to never forget the contribution Jarrah made to International House, this scholarship honours her wonderful acceptance of people and cultures.
The scholarship will have a maximum value of $2, 000, which will be paid as a reduction in International House college fees.
