Allowed me to pursue my career aspirations with less stress

The Women in Information Technology scholarship helped me a lot financially and allowed me to pursue my career aspirations with less stress. Monash has a very seamless process when it comes to scholarships, so I strongly encourage other women students in IT to apply.

Don’t be afraid to try new things and pathways. There’s a lot of flexibility here, so it’s really easy to explore your interests and passions. Through Monash’s Industry-Based Learning program, I’ve also been able to gain unique work experience.
