This grant enabled me to start my course work and assist me to come to the conclusion that I wanted to be a nurse lecturer. This is something I achieved on 2nd July 2018, a whole year after receiving a grant from the Foundation. I think receiving the award gave me the realisation to follow my dreams." Sophie, education grant recipient.
