Clayton, Give to Change recipient
Securing a Staff-Funded Scholarship made a real difference to Clayton, an environmental biology student in his third year.
"The scholarship relieved a lot of financial pressure," Clayton reveals.
The fully-funded scholarship provides funding to students who might otherwise struggle to fund their studies through part-time work and family support. Funded entirely by Curtin staff, to-date four $5,000 scholarships have been awarded to students in need, providing them with funds to ease the burden of financial stress and debt.
"With this financial aid I have been able to comfortably satisfy rent, food, utility and study-related expenditures," says clayton. "I would like to emphasise my appreciation to the contributing staff for making this scholarship available for students like myself."
