Family, friends, patients and peers who made donations in memory of the late Dr Con Moshegov have together raised over AU$60,000, which will support two University of Technology Sydney (UTS) scholarships created in his name. The donations will also enable the purchase of an ocular A/B scan ultrasound biometer, enabling UTS Orthoptics students to gain practical experience.

The two high achieving students who received the scholarships commenced in the Master of Orthoptics earlier this year. The Dr Con Moshegov Orthoptics Scholarship for a student with a refugee background was awarded to Mirai Al Kaed, and the Dr Con Moshegov Orthoptics Scholarship for a student from a rural, remote or interstate location was awarded to Maya Bujas.

Ms Al Kaed said being awarded the Con Moshegov Scholarship was one of her life’s greatest moments. “As I become a professional and competent orthoptist, I won’t forget the impact this scholarship has had, thank you,” she said.

For Ms Bujas, the scholarship has enabled her to pursue something she is immensely passionate about.

“The Dr Con Moshegov scholarship is not only assisting my financial needs in the present, but it is ensuring my success in the future. I greatly appreciate the honour that has been placed on me and the pursuit of my career in Orthoptics.”
