I chose the course after I fell in love with the programme however I’m struggling to meet the costs of software, transport and equipment to realise my potential. By receiving this scholarship I’ll be able to relax a little bit more and really focus on my studies rather than my financial situation.

Hamish celebrates receiving the scholarship

Studying Digital Journalism

Hamish chose to study Digital Journalism to further his interest in photography, film and storytelling. He will use some of the scholarship money to pay for a camera which will help him develop his skills through his course.

Before being awarded the Bright Futures Scholarship, Hamish was struggling with the cost of attending university after his dad suddenly passed away three years ago.
