Professor Peter Lee, Vice Chancellor

The scholarship has eased my financial burdens, allowed me to reach new levels in both my study and sporting life and enriched my time as a student at Southern Cross University.

Moesha Johnson

Without the scholarship, I would not be able to dedicate as much of my time to my degree, and for that I am so grateful.

Caitlin Esposito

I am eternally grateful and thankful to my donor for providing me with this scholarship over the past 3 years which has helped lessen the burden of the costs of university.
