An essay on child drownings in rural areas by ANU Medical School student Liam Stone was selected as this year's winner of the ANU Medical School Bega Cheese Scholarship.
Mr Stone was presented with his $3000 scholarship by Bega Cheese manager Matt Fanning in the Medical School tutorial rooms at Bega Hospital.
Mr Stone is a Year 3 Rural Stream student based in Bega.
Mr Fanning said Bega Cheese is pleased to have been associated with the ANU Medical School for the past 10 years.
Mr Stone said he is considering coming back to Bega on completion of his Doctor of Medicine and Surgery (MChD) studies at ANU to do some more rural work at the new hospital.
