Budding entrepreneur becomes UniSA's 2015 marketing scolar
23 April 2015
At only 17, Madeleine Caines had already launched her own YouTube channel, an event hair and makeup business, and run a vegan food stall. And now the first-year marketing student has secured the 2015 Ehrenberg Scholarship at UniSA.
Madeleine was selected from a number of high-calibre candidates, who had all achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank score of 95 and above in their Year 12 results.
Director of the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute for Marketing Science at UniSA, Professor Byron Sharp congratulated Madeleine on winning the scholarship.
“Madeleine was a standout candidate and impressed the selection panel with her entrepreneurial flair, having already started several small businesses even though she was still in high school,” he said.
“She achieved outstanding results in her Year 12 studies, excelling in the areas of Psychology, Mathematics, and English. This will provide her with a solid base for studying marketing.
“She is already considering a PhD in marketing and we look forward to seeing what she does next as she embarks on her tertiary education journey.”
The Ehrenberg Scholarship – which is named after the late Professor Andrew Ehrenberg, one of the namesakes of the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute – is awarded to one new marketing student from those with an ATAR of 95 or above and covers their first-year student HECS Fees.
