“My greatest achievement to date has been balancing
family, friends and extra curricular activities with the
study load from my VCE and achieving my dream of
getting into medicine at Monash. I was extremely
excited when I received my scholarship offer as it
reduced the pressure of paying CSP fees and
supporting myself, meaning I can focus more
on my studies.”

                                                was a fantastic surprise and immediately
                                                increased my confidence about going to
                                                university. The move from Warrnambool
                                                and the challenge of living in Melbourne
                                                and adjusting to uni life has been made
                                                smoother. With the added benefit of the
                                                scholarship, I am no longer under stress
                                                financially and can concentrate on
                                                studying and enjoying the vast and exciting
                                                uni culture.”

“Being offered a support bursary was a fantastic
way to commence the academic year. I was
thrilled as it helps alleviate some of the costs
associated with university. It has meant I can
purchase all the required text books and
resources needed for the year without having
to take on additional part time work.”
