Catherine Latailakepa

“These scholarships have helped my family and me tremendously! In particular the MediBank Nursing Scholarship I am currently on has paid for my travel expenses to and from University, textbooks for my papers and paid for a 10 week work placement. It’s an awesome scholarship that covers your whole nursing degree.”

Tyla Tariau

“After filling out lots of scholarship applications during my last year of High school and not receiving any, I almost lost hope and was about to give up. Thankfully I didn’t. I would encourage everybody to keep persevering and to never lose hope. There are plenty of organisations outside University that want to invest in your future. All you need to do is look around and dedicate the time to apply."
