                                            Commonwealth Scholarship Recipient
                                            Indigenous student Joel Cama considered dropping out of a
                                            degree in International Studies because he wasn’t sure he
                                            could afford it.
                                            “Moving from Lithgow to Sydney was a big wake-up call for
                                             me,” he says, “My parents aren’t that well off… and it can be
                                             challenging for many students to keep financially afloat.”
                                            Joel now receives a scholarship from UTS, and he is quick to
                                            recognise the transformative effects it has had on his life. “As
                                            soon as I got it, every worry just dropped and I could focus on
                                            what I needed to do. I’m nowhere near as stressed,” he says.
                                             Importantly, Joel can also see how the scholarship has given
                                             him a clearer vision of what he wants to achieve. “I want to
                                             work in elite sport,” he explains. “I want to use sports as a
                                             platform to correct social injustices. Someone once told me
                                             that we’re getting help now so that we can help others later on.
                                             I’m 100 per cent behind that.”

      LEIGHTON BLOCH,
      Bachelor of Construction Project Management,
      Hansen Yuncken Scholarship Recipient
     “I began my career as an apprentice draftsperson with a
      civil engineering consultancy, which involved undertaking a
      diploma at TAFE. Once I completed it, I was able to apply to
      UTS and received a year’s worth of exemptions. UTS tends
      to cater better for working professionals, both in the subject
      timetable and geographic location. Plus, Construction
      Project Management students seem to find work quite
      quickly: the majority of my classmates have cadetships by
      year two or three. Because of this you can begin growing
      your professional network quite early on. Students in the
      course also earn a pretty decent wage when compared to the
      internships in architecture or engineering. Plus studying with
      others working in the industry, and hearing about their work
      experiences, is very inspiring.
     In 2015 I received the Hansen Yuncken Scholarship, which was
     a huge accomplishment considering it was my first year at
     uni. They’ve also offered me a cadetship, which I am looking
     forward to commencing once I have progressed through the

               at UTS.
               “We all did a dance around the house. It was such a relief. My life would have been very
                different had I not received the Law Equity Scholarship”. Alison believes that she couldn’t
                have achieved everything she’s done without it, including graduating with first class
                honours. During her time at UTS: Law she set-up the Indigenous Collective which provides
                support and advice to Indigenous students on campus. This is when she realised the
                importance of the balance between law and her Aboriginal community. “The UTS Law
                Equity Scholarship made my undergraduate study possible, for one. It bought essentials for
                study and living in the first four years of my undergraduate coursework.”
