Scholarships change lives

The scholarship means a lot to me. Winning has expanded my network as I’ve met amazing and friendly people at Mainfreight International here in Brisbane during my site visit. It is also a great financial support during my time here at university, especially since I live on campus.

Mainfreight Scholarship recipient

Having this scholarship will give me the safety of not having to work five days a week, so I can concentrate on my studies. I said in my application that I really value the balance between work, study and keeping up a social life, so winning the financial assistance will go a big way towards achieving that.

Winner of the 2018 QBM Griffith MBA Responsible Leadership scholarship Cara Turnley expects companies to increasingly take a stand on important social issues, such as marriage equality, because their employees, customers and clients expect it. She says Griffith's MBA will help her revolutionise the way business and government operate and aid her in becoming a leader of distinction.

“I think that type of trend will keep happening, especially with the younger generation,” she says. Cara believes a lot of millennial workers expect their employers to think the way they do. “Companies are not going to be able retain or recruit the best people if they don’t change the way they think about sustainable business and corporate responsibility,” she says.

Cara’s scholarship is valued at $50,000.
