Some of the first students to receive a Moreton Bay Regional Council Scholarship in 2020, when the campus first opened, are due to graduate this year.
UniSC Vice-Chancellor and President Helen Bartlett said each scholarship winner was an inspiration to others in Moreton Bay who might not have considered tertiary education as an option due to financial or other barriers.
“We are so proud of their achievements and to see new recipients follow in their footsteps this year," Professor Bartlett said.
“Moreton Bay once had some of the lowest university attendance rates in Australia, so the growth we have seen in just three years has proven that demand for locally available university education is high.”
Mayor Peter Flannery said the Council’s scholarship program was a great investment into the future leaders of Moreton Bay.
“This is life changing for some of these students who come through the Moreton Bay Regional Council Scholarship Program,” he said.
“It’s about giving those students who might not have financial support an opportunity to take on tertiary education and hope it will be paid back in the future, with many bright and talented students staying in Moreton Bay and giving back to our wonderful community.
