Receiving this scholarship helped to ease the financial pressures of being a starving student and allowed me more time to focus on my studies. I am happy to say that I graduated with a diploma of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Category M with honors, and am currently working my dream job in helicopter maintenance.
