Anastasia Betts - Jennifer Duggan Leaper Scholarship
"As a young person at university, the demands of my caring role meant that I greatly missed out on a fair few leadership and volunteering opportunities that I was passionate about. Now, and with the financial support of the Jennifer Duggan Leaper Scholarship, I can take advantage of these opportunities."
Josh Cubillo - Lochrie Indigenous Australian Education Scholarship
"We need Indigenous students to keep taking up these opportunities to show there is still a need for the financial assistance as we endeavour to take up tertiary studies and improve the socio-economic status of Indigenous people in Australia."
Sienna Ahn - The Bank First MGSE Community Spirit Award
"My advice would be, enjoy what you do and be involved with appropriate passion. In my case, it was being part of my community and actively looking out for those in need of care and support."
