Student and scholarship recipient

I was excited and honoured to be awarded a scholarship. It’s reassuring to know I can now afford all the necessary resources needed to do my best at university.

I was extremely excited, honoured and proud to be awarded a George Alexander Foundation Scholarship. Both my family and I felt reassured knowing I could now afford all the necessary resources and university expenses needed to do my best.

Community involvement gives me a great deal of satisfaction. I’ve helped with Meals on Wheels, worked with junior sports programs, undertaken community service at a special school, and volunteered at a nursing home.

My career goal is to become a well-trained and highly regarded health care professional. I believe nothing is more important than being entrusted with a human life, and I look forward to improving the health of my community.

I really appreciate the friendly and intimate environment at ACU. The lecturers willingly share their time and knowledge, and they genuinely want their students to achieve their full potential.

I can’t wait to finish university and join the workforce. I will relish the opportunity to make a positive impact on individuals, families and communities.
