Olivia, Bachelor of Psychology (Honours)

Olivia: From rural Victoria to Monash

Moving from my rural town over 5 hours away to the city and having to find accommodation were barriers I faced to attend Monash. Without this scholarship, university would not have been possible for me because I come from a very low income family. Being able to attend university and pursue my dreams as well as being independent has greatly boosted my self confidence and happiness.
