The OLA Fellowship
The OLA Fellowship
The Old Lauristonians’ Association (OLA) has established a Fellowship program to support professional development, to help deliver a unique project, research or further study undertaken by an Old Lauristonian in her related field.
In line with the OLA vision and mission the Fellowship program will provide a financial contribution of $5,000 to the successful applicant. We are extremely proud to be offering this opportunity to our Old Lauristonian community and look forward to showcasing the successful Fellow to the wider Lauriston community at the Valedictory Assembly.
The recipient of this Fellowship will be required to submit an article to The Lauristonian on completion of their 12-month term, highlighting the benefits of being awarded the Fellowship including any information about any Lauriston connections involved and how the OLA assisted the Fellow (preferably with a photo), prior to 31 August the following year.
Applications for the 2023 OLA fellowship are now open and we invite all Old Lauristonians to submit their application.

Fellowship Podcast hosted by Sabina Read (Bradfield, 1988)
Sabina Read (Bradfield, 1988) was thrilled to host a special edition podcast with Sophie Tissot and Steph Parsons, two OLA Fellowship recipients – Sophie was awarded her Fellowship in 2021 and Steph in 2022. Being in conversation with these two passionate, curious, and accomplished humans felt like a combination of reconnecting with old friends, dialling up career inspiration, and being reminded of the old-school connections that bond us all. The conversation highlights the impact on our identities and careers when others see you and believe in you. A simple fellowship like this has the potential to help build careers, invites alumnae to stretch and grow, and creates a ripple of impact well beyond any one talented and motivated recipient.
Thank you Sabina, for highlighting the importance of the OLA Fellowship, the value of ‘old school’ connections and the significance of staying connected.
