I was surprised at the amount of extracurricular opportunities available to me as a scholarship holder.

I was invited to apply for the Monash Minds leadership program and was accepted. I was then able to be part of a Monash delegation to Redfern in Sydney to be a mentor at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence. Since then, I’ve been able to use my Monash Minds experience to apply for the Vice-Chancellor’s Ancora Imparo program, which I was also accepted into.” MEGAN LIEW Monash Scholarship for Outstanding Achievement recipient Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Arts 5
