New College Indigenous Scholarships
Meet Kate, who came to New College and The University of New South Wales in 2014 to study a Bachelor of Arts (Major: politics, minor: women and gender studies) and Bachelor of Law.
“The Paul & Mabs George Memorial Scholarship has enabled me to get the most out of college and university. The scholarship helped to alleviate much of the stress of relocation to Sydney. I am very thankful for the Paul & Mabs George Memorial Scholarship for making it easier to cope.”
“I really enjoy living at New College. I am quite an introverted person, however, I feel at New College that doesn’t matter. It is a very social place that caters for all types of people. The culture at New is very supportive and encourages people to develop strong friendships. There are many likeminded people committed to their studies.”
“I try my best to get really involved in life at New College. This year I am one of New College’s Sports Directors. In this role I regularly advertise and attend our college sporting events, particularly in the UNSW Inter- College Sports competition. I am an active member on the 2015 New College Student Association Executive. There are always events happening at New!”
The New College Indigenous Scholarship program offers talented Indigenous students assistance to live at New College while they study at UNSW. We are partnering with UNSW to double the number of Indigenous students at our university.
The Paul & Mabs George Memorial Scholarship assists an Indigenous student to attend UNSW and live at New College. The scholarship is made possible by New College matching the funds that are provided by a major donor to the UNSW Foundation.
The support of alumni and friends of New College enables us to contribute half of the funds for The Paul & Mabs George Memorial Scholarship recipient and additional support to other Indigenous residents of New College.
