Bond University indigenous scholarship student share success story
Recipient of the 2015 Bond University indigenous scholarship, Bethany Allen, has discussed the way the scholarship has changed her life, thanks to sponsors such as TechnologyOne.
Ms Allen commenced her Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Laws degree in 2015, with TechnologyOne undertaking sponsorship of her scholarship as part of its commitment to supporting the development of youth in its communities and ensuring deep collaboration with the education sector.
“The Indigenous scholarship has completely changed the future I am able to see for myself,” Ms Allen says.
“It has given me the tools I need to build both a career and a community, and has even strengthened my cultural ties. Without the scholarship, I might never have been able to come to Bond and have the opportunity and community that I am so lucky to have.
“My Bond scholarship has changed my life immeasurably. I’m getting to do things I would never have dared to dream about.”
TechnologyOne recently announced the establishment of a company-wide Foundation, enabling it to take part in more initiatives like this. The Foundation is underpinned by the 1% Pledge, which commits the company to donating 1% of its time, 1% of profit and 1% of product—amounting to a multi-million dollar annual investment.
