Quotes from past recipients:
"Being able to meet Robbie, the daughter of Sir William Tyree and her family was an amazing experience that I will always remember. That is not the scholarship itself but the opportunities that came with it. I've never had someone so invested in me and helping me which has really helped me believe in myself. That sounds corny but its true. When I got the email that I had been chosen as the sole recipient I couldn't believe it. I still don't believe it. Having this scholarship and knowing Robbie, I feel like I can't let her down or let her father's legacy down. I may have dropped out of university or taken a gap year but instead I try my best. This scholarship and Robbie have changed my life for the better." - Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) (Honours) student
