Recent Scholarship Recipients
Malcolm Chaikin Scholarship
Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Commerce
Baulkham Hills High School
While seeking an academic scholarship I was immediately drawn to the Malcolm Chaikin Scholarship because of the many opportunities it provides to recipients. The financial assistance allows focus to shift from earning income to pay off textbooks and other university expenses to spending more time on both academic studies and participation in UNSW activities.
Having received this prestigious scholarship, I look forward to maintaining my academic performance in my chosen degree while contributing both to UNSW and the broader community.
Malcolm Chaikin (Graduate)
Bachelor of Science
Kinross Wolaroi, Orange
I grew up on a small property outside Orange in central NSW and took a gap year after finishing high school. It wasn't until the end of my gap year that I finally decided to pursue a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Ecology and Physical Geography at UNSW.
Studying at UNSW was an easy choice as it has such a great reputation for Science and landing the scholarship was a great assistance in supporting myself away from home. With the help of the scholarship, I have had more time to participate in a wide range of university activities outside my course, such as a number of sports and outdoor activities like bushwalking and diving. The scholarship also assisted me during my 6 month International Exchange to Exeter University in the UK and during 5 months spent on a conservation project in South Africa.
Without the assistance provided by the scholarship, there is no way I would have been able to undertake such amazing adventures!
