Tom - Scholarship Recipient

Tom Lancaster – Current Scholarship participant

I am extremely grateful for this opportunity provided to me by Westernport Water. I can’t appreciate enough their ongoing support throughout every year of my degree, in both the study and work phases of the scholarship. It has allowed me to purely focus my time and energy on completing my degree during the year, whilst gaining relevant work experience over each summer period. Spending time in the field and working on real projects provides me with practical experience that is difficult to gain through University alone. The scholarship has already provided me with amazing industry contacts and I have a year of guaranteed employment to look forward to when I graduate.
