New Hunter Water Indigenous Scholarships

Monday, 24 September 2018

“I hope to give back to others by speaking at rural schools and explaining that being at a disadvantage doesn’t have to be a hindrance. It can be a driver of determination” – Jack Roberts, First year Bachelor of Commerce student, and one of four University of Newcastle students already benefiting from generous philanthropic support received from Hunter Water.

The partnership has created three scholarships that will change lives and bring new talent and ideas into our community; while helping to further Hunter Water’s equity and diversity goals. In addition to financial support to help students with their studies, the scholarships mark the start of an ongoing relationship that can lead to valuable initiatives like on-the-job training and mentoring.
