Scholarship to honour Louise

LOUISE Brown’s death reverberated sorrow and shock through the Byron Bay community recently, leaving many pondering how such a prosperous and promising life could be cut so short.

But her friends, despite their grief, have come together to ensure Ms Brown’s legacy as an extremely intelligent and passionate social justice advocate will live on through a university scholarship.

Louise Brown, from Suffolk Park, died on April 13 in an apartment fire in Paris.

The 25-year-old was in Paris studying at Sciences Po on an exclusive scholarship and was one of five people who died in the blaze.

Ms Brown was studying in Paris as part of a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations and Law at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney.

UNSW will establish The Louise Brown Scholarship in memory of the bright student.

UNSW Faculty of Law Dean Professor David Dickson said the scholarship would personify Ms Brown.
