Kelly, Give to Change recipient
Kelly, a social work student in her first year at Curtin, discovered the Give to Change program through the Curtin website.
"I read what it did and who it supports, and thought it was a fantastic program that could assist me greatly," Kelly says.
Kelly applied for a Staff-Funded Scholarship, a fully-funded scholarship for students who may otherwise struggle to fund their studies through part-time work or family assistance.
Since receiving the scholarship, Kelly has been able to purchase books, reading glasses and a laptop computer to help her complete her studies.
"I was struggling financially due to external personal issues," Kelly reveals. "Receiving the grant has assisted both myself and my children with that was an extremely difficult financial time in our lives, and I am truly grateful."
