What can a scholarship do?
PhD candidate (BioSciences)
Recipient of a Dame Margaret Blackwood Soroptimist Scholarship
I am incredibly grateful for support over two years during my PhD. With a young child, travelling for research can be financially and logistically difficult. The scholarship has significantly relieved this pressure, allowing me to visit and work with interstate collaborators, as well as to attend conferences.
