Scholarship winners share why students should apply

For Vietnamese ICMS Bachelor of Event Management student Thanh Truc Dao (Anna), the ICMS International Scholarship awarded in 2020 not only helped her financially, but has ignited her sense of self-confidence and inspired her to dream big.

“As a scholarship recipient, I can’t tell you enough how much (this opportunity) means to me. Not only has the ICMS Scholarship helped me cover part of my tuition, it also imparted me with the belief that I can do anything,” she said.

“Being granted this scholarship motivates me to take on more challenges, which includes applying to big name companies and, most importantly, starting my own business at the age of 19.”

Similarly, ICMS Bachelor of Business student Edward Hennessy, a regional student from Dubbo, NSW, said the ICMS Professional Scholarship he was awarded in 2021 allowed him to worry less about finances and more about his future career.

“By being awarded this scholarship, ICMS have eased my financial burden which has allowed me to focus more on the most important aspect of my tertiary studies, which is learning. This scholarship was beneficial in helping me to relocate from Dubbo to Manly and live in this beautiful location in the castle,” he said.

“Living on campus has assisted me to meet, interact and form social connections with other ICMS students from a variety of locations. The scholarship is supporting me to achieve my goals and make my dreams of becoming successful true in the future.”
