Testimonial

“I wish to extend my thanks to the members of the Board for their support over the last three years through the scholarship I have received. Through the granting of this scholarship I have been able to study toward a Bachelor of Veterinary Science. I have been able to put aside some stressors with regard to course fees and living costs and focus on my study. I am very proud to be able to represent the Awarua Trust.”
