Scholarships – The good kind of chance

As Term 1 2021 Scholarship applications are now open, we asked current Nursing student and scholarship recipient, Inneka Lippitt, why she applied for her scholarship and what advice she would give to other students who are thinking of applying for a scholarship.

Scholarships… I had heard of the term but never really knew what they were, let alone how to apply for one! 

I thought they were something only the very elite, VIP students received.


It was not until I received an email from CQUni about scholarships stating that applications were now open that I decided to apply. 

So here I am now, lucky enough to be a recipient of the CQUni Cares Launch Scholarship.

Applying for a scholarship was an easy process where I filled in the online application form and attached the appropriate supporting documents. 

The best bit was that the scholarship team matched up my application with scholarships that I was eligible for, so it meant only one application, too easy!

I never thought I would ever receive a scholarship, but it was the best decision I ever made.  

It’s been a great boost to my confidence and an even better boost financially to help with the costs of placements whilst still working, having a family and all the other commitments that go along.

I encourage anyone who is thinking about it to apply. You never know what you could receive.
