Miss Fowler, a former Columba College pupil, was recently
selected from several applicants for the annual $1000
scholarship awarded by the trust.
''She would have been selected by the panel had their been 15
people, such a deserving winner was she,'' Mr Graham said.
A first-year student at Otago, Miss Fowler said she was
studying law and towards a Bachelor of the Arts degree. She
would put the scholarship money towards her study costs.
''I am very grateful to the RSA.''
Her grandfather, Bill Fowler, had been a member of the
Mosgiel RSA, she said.
The annual scholarship is open to young people from the
greater Mosgiel and Green Island area.
