Quotes from past recipients:
"The scholarship has made me feel more financially stable and calmer. If I do need to buy something for my studies, I do not have to worry about where I am going to get the money from. It has also helped me with general life experiences, such as emergency trips to the dentist." - Bachelor of Criminology and Psychology student
