I relocated to Melbourne for university and needed to support myself. With this scholarship, I was able to take up a research internship instead of having to work all summer.

As an Indigenous student, the William Cooper Institute has made an incredible impact on my student experience. I had help applying for scholarships and opportunities, received academic assistance with my studies, and attended social events to meet other Indigenous students.
