  • Julia Nordlinger
    "I am touched by the generosity and proud of my achievement. Going back to study a Masters Degree at a mature age was intimidating for me - and hard to juggle as a busy mother and social worker. I decided that the only way to cope with my fear was to give it my absolute "all". I studied very hard and threw myself into all aspects of learning. To be recognised by this scholarship feels immensely rewarding and makes the hard work feel worth it."
    - Julia Nordlinger
