Brian and his wife Barbara chose to donate to the WAIT Alumni Scholarship Endowment Fund in recognition of the opportunities that their time at Curtin has provided them. They hope that their contribution will enable those with financial struggles to access tertiary education. “Times have changed and opportunities that previous generations took for granted are no longer as easily accessible today,” Brian says.
One of Brian’s proudest moments is hearing about the great work which is being done by the fund and how its creating life-changing pathways for exceptionally talented students who might not otherwise have had access to an education. Brian knows how much this support makes a difference to an individuals life, and he urges more to get involved no matter how large or small the contribution.
“As Curtin University continues to excel and rise in the global academic ranks, with strong support we can help all students to maximise their potential regardless of their financial circumstances.”
