Supporting Student Potential


At Southern Cross University our students are leaders…of today and tomorrow. The Rising Stars Scholarships program helps support our students to reach their potential and fulfil their dreams. Rising Stars Scholarships aim to reward students who demonstrate outstanding academic potential and provide financial support to students who might otherwise not have the opportunity to achieve a university education.

"Thank you so much, and the foundation for their ongoing support. Your financial contribution, but also your belief in me has assisted me to push on through the difficult time in my studies. It has made such a difference to my past 3 and a bit years of study. I have been working at Murwillumbah East public for the last 18 months and I have strong indication of employment prospects there in the future."

"I am also completing my last practicum at Uki public which is also close to home and a good community to finish my degree in. My children are also very excited for their mum to be stepping away from the laptop for a while... as much as this scholarship has assisted me personally, it has also benefited my children who would have missed out on so much more of my attention and time if I had to take on a third job. Thankfully that was not the case and with your support I hope to finish this year on a bright and confident note, ready to start a career in teaching like I always have dreamed."

"I would like to thank Lords Taverners Northern NSW for awarding me the scholarship, it has made my University studies a lot easier and motivated me to do well in all of my subjects. The scholarship pays for all of my text books and my HEX debt which assists me greatly financially. The scholarship also motivates me to do my best because I know that I have lots of people supporting me and wanting for me to do well in my studies."

"I would also like to thank Lords Taverners Northern NSW for offering me the opportunity to be on the "Top Sports Camp" committee. "Top Sports Camp" is a camp run by Lords Taverners Northern NSW for disadvantaged youth, it is set to run late September this year. I look forward to being a part of the camp once again. "
