Our OzTREKK scholarships applications are incredible!

Holy smokes. I just spent hours immersed in some pretty incredible scholarship applications—and I am humbled.

First: the response was wonderful, overwhelming, really. We received more than 150 scholarship applications, and while we’ve not yet read / watched all of them, at first pass, they are truly amazing.

Our OzTREKK scholarships applications are incredible!

Stay tuned: winners announced Dec. 16, 2016

It was nearly awe-inspiring how accomplished our students are already. These are students who are not going to make an impact, but who have already made an impact on their communities. I say “communities” with intention as these students are making a positive impact on a variety of individual people, groups and organizations around them. We have students who have touched individuals, underserved citizens, church groups, towns and the global community in the truest sense of the words.

So where are we at this point? Well, the scholarships are inventoried. Over the next six weeks, our OzTREKK Scholarship Committee will review and rank each scholarship application and video leading up to the announcement in December.

I can see ahead already: this process is bittersweet as there are dozens and dozens of deserving students, but few OzTREKK scholarships. There are so many exceptional students! I feel honoured to be invited into their lives through this process, and it’s going to be fun to get to know each one of them a little more.

When we started the OzTREKK Community Leaders Scholarships, I simply had no idea that we’d see students who are doing such incredible things before beginning their dream career. I am so keen to see what happens with the soon-to-be doctor in five years or the soon-to-be pharmacist in a decade.

Lives are truly being changed, and I know all of us at OzTREKK are grateful for the privilege to play even the tiniest role in that story.

Jaime Notman
OzTREKK Director / Operations Manager

Thank you to everyone who submitted an application. Please note applications are now closed and the winners will be announced December 16, 2016 via our Facebook page!
