Quotes from past recipients:
"This scholarship I am receiving has provided a means of financial security throughout the past year of studying. It has allowed me to focus on the courses in my degree, rather than have to divide my attention between that and a part-time job. I have also been fortunate in being able to participate in a number of volunteer activities, extra-curricular to my degree program, which has provided extremely valuable personal experience and skill development. These volunteer opportunities would not have been so available if I was not receiving this scholarship." - Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering) (Honours) student
