Scholarship Success Stories

Scholarship Success Stories

Scholarships are integral to supporting students on the path to success. Meet the talented scholarship recipients that graduated in 2018.

Our recent graduates share their reflections on the impact of receiving a scholarship:

“I’m really grateful for my scholarship because it helped me an incredible amount. Architecture is a really expensive course in terms of materials and printing costs, so it really helped me to be able to focus on my work instead of how much it was costing. The scholarship allowed me to stop worrying about affording basic necessities like food and rent, and even allowed me to travel, which I hadn’t ever been able to afford. I travelled to Europe and Japan thanks to the scholarship, which was amazing for my architectural education.”

“My scholarship helped me succeed by giving me the motivation and push in the right direction. Without it, I would’ve really struggled to financially support myself and my mother, whom I’m a carer for, throughout my studies. It took a really big weight off my shoulders which then allowed me to divert my full attention to doing the best I could with my studies, and I feel with the scholarship I reached my full potential.”

Michael Efron Business Scholarship

“My scholarship enabled me to complete an unpaid internship over the summer break between my third and fourth years of study. This internship was interstate, based in NSW and due to the work being unpaid, I would not have been able to take the opportunity if not for the scholarship granting me the financial freedom to do so. The scholarship funded this endeavour and this piece of work was my first real insight into the world of research within my field. I would never have even been offered the work opportunity had I not met certain individuals at the ceremony where I was awarded this scholarship. The scholarship itself and the networking opportunities it gave me really jumpstarted my entry into research.”
