I needed a laptop to help me with my studies and just couldn’t afford it. My scholarship helped me to purchase a laptop so that I could start studying more from home (especially during Covid) and not completely rely on Curtin facilities to complete assignments and assessments. Working from home also saves money on fuel and now I can put that towards savings. I am now working off my new laptop with all the programs needed for my degree. I am so thankful for the scholarship, it has helped me financially and helped my grades rise due to the time saved on travelling to and from university.
