The scholarship I received has allowed me to pursue my ambitions of undertaking an MA in Intercultural Communication and International Development. Coming from a low-income background, without it I would not have been able to fund my masters for many years. It has taken much of the financial stress out of studying and, as I am not having to work too many hours to fund my living costs, I am able to dedicate some hours towards volunteering with a local refugee centre.
It also allows me to engage fully with the course and take advantage of the opportunity to go on the field trip to either the Galapagos, Tanzania or Nepal, and to gain professional experience with an NGO in Mozambique!
