“I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for Downer’s generosity in funding this scholarship. It has been my honour to be the recipient of this award and the assistance has proven to be invaluable. I am in my third year of studying a Bachelor of Health Science, with the hope of pursuing postgraduate study in the field of medicine and science, and the long-term goal of becoming a Doctor of Medicine & Surgery. Thanks to your generous scholarship, I am now a whole lot closer to achieving my goals.”
