Quotes from past recipients:

"Receiving this scholarship meant I could focus on my education. It meant I could focus on my studies without the worries of not being able to afford textbooks, laptops and stationery necessary for my classes. Because this scholarship was so generous, it also provided me enough for personal expenses. While this financial aspect of this scholarship made my university experience a much easier process, it also provided me a position at Icon Co. This has definitely directed me in the right path. It has given me a great opportunity to further my career after I graduate." - Bachelor of Applied Science (Construction Management) (Honours)
