Ms Thompson (pictured above with the Governor General, His Excellency Major General Michael Jeffery) was one of only eight winners selected from 153 applicants nationally, and will receive up to $150,000 over three years to further her education at one of the world’s leading universities in her chosen field of study. She will study for a Doctorate of Philosophy at Duke University in the United States.
