Testimonials

“My bursary has proven to be of invaluable assistance to me during these times. I truly cannot express how much it helps to have that little bit more to rely on”

– Susie Benton,
Long Tan Bursary recipient

"This bursary meant a lot to me. It wasn't just the financial assistance but knowing someone cared and was sharing the journey.

I wanted to complete my degree here in Townsville so that I could be close to my father and he could continue to be a part of our lives. Dad has been the major role model in the lives of my three children. He is a good and stable influence. Thank you so much for your support.

- Wilhelmina Rawling 

Long Tan Bursary Recipients

"Thank you for absolutely everything. For being the reason I could afford to print lecture slides for every class, park at uni, purchase the latest textbooks for reference and for being the reason I could visit my family during holidays.

They say that it is the little things that count and this could not be more true. By being provided the scholarship, I was able to complete two university degrees with a high distinction average, receive an award for academic excellence, gain practical industry experience, and remain sane in the meantime. TPI NSW, thank you!"
