Establishment

The scholarship was established to honour the memory of Wendy Hyslop. Wendy Hyslop was a dedicated clinical psychologist who had a passion for Psychology and helping people. Wendy worked in adult mental health services, in both the public and private sectors, and had experience in both clinical settings and within the University research and teaching setting. Wendy gave back to the community by providing clinical supervision to interns from the University of Newcastle and, in recent years, also provided peer and student supervision services.

Wendy's family wish to honour her work and her name in this memorial scholarship which will assist students undertaking a Master of Clinical Psychology and who are also facing financial challenges. Wendy supported herself through her own studies, working full time and part time, while completing her Psychology degree.
