I was very appreciative to be the recipient of a Mumbulla Foundation Community Scholarship in 2019. Your generosity further inspired me to improve my skills to help others and give back to the community. Marg Hansen Bachelor of Nursing
Receiving this scholarship will motivate me to maintain a credit average, and now cut back on the extended hours I work per week to help assist in my university debts. I thank you for your confidence and willingness to help me achieve my goals. Claudia Mitchell Bachelor of Nursing
I would like to thank you for awarding me the 2021 John Moffatt Memorial Scholarship and supporting regional students like myself. This scholarship will contribute towards my career as a secondary teacher and allow me to access teaching resources such as subject textbooks, as well as resources for students in my classes. Ryan Lonesborough Master of Teaching (Secondary)
