Kahurangi Simpson — Scholarship Testimonials

Kahurangi Simpson and Professor Elizabeth Roberts, Head of School of Business and Tourism at SCU.

I am extremely appreciative of the opportunities Southern Cross has provided me with the 2016 Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship. Being awarded with this scholarship as recognition of my academic achievements at Palm Beach Currumbin State High School is a true honour. The bestowal of the scholarship funds has had a direct influence on creating a smooth transition between high school and the responsibilities that full-time university life brings. Being seventeen and living at home with my mother I am not entitled to student allowance; so financially I am very appreciative as it means I can limit my part-time work to follow my true passion.

Growing up on the Tweed Coast it has been extremely important to me that I give back to my surrounding community — I am certain studying the Bachelor of Laws at my local Southern Cross campus will help me achieve this goal.

Thank you again for this once in a lifetime opportunity,

Kahurangi Simpson
