My Jennie Thomas Scholarship Experience

I was awarded the Emilyn and Jennie Thomas top-up scholarship at a very critical period of my life when I needed to fully focus on my scholarly pursuits and not worry about finances. Frankly speaking, my PhD journey would have been very difficult without this scholarship. In addition to the obvious financial stability that the scholarship provided, the mentorship, unreserved encouragement and moral support from Jennie Thomas that it came with, is something that I cannot put a price upon and it is something that I will forever cherish. The scholarship has also contributed to the successful outcome of other research and travel grants down the track, ultimately making me more competitive for my future endeavour in research and academia.
