2015 scholarship winner, Colin Murchison:

I had attempted and failed to study at the University of Auckland previously due to financial restrictions. When applying this time, I told myself I would do whatever it took to find funding, so I scoured the resources my home university’s international office had and applied for all the scholarships I could find. I ended up receiving 3 different scholarships.” Read more
