Carey has a long, valued tradition of supporting diversity and inclusivity and the Access and Equity Scholarship has an important role in continuing this commitment.
The scholarship provides a unique and life-changing opportunity for a student who would otherwise not be able to attend Carey due to disadvantage or financial hardship.
The following inspirational story is but one example of how the Access and Equity Scholarship has helped transform the lives of Carey students:
Kyizom (Kym) Tenzin (2018, pictured) was born in an Indian refugee camp following the Chinese annexation of Tibet.
‘When my youngest sister was born, she had a lymphatic malformation and the local hospitals couldn’t treat her. We were very fortunate to have met Moira Kelly who arranged medical treatment in Australia and settled us in primary and secondary schools.
‘Together with Ahmed Kelly, a refugee with a disability attending our school at the time, Moira helped to secure me a scholarship to study at Carey.
‘The friendships I made at Carey helped me build my confidence inside and outside the classroom. I felt empowered to take advantage of opportunities I would not have had the exposure to or ability to participate in otherwise.
‘I am now undertaking a Bachelor of Science and hope to later specialise in nursing to complement my experience working with Aunty Moira and help children with a disability.’
With our community’s support, we can change a life and offer another student experiencing disadvantage or hardship a Carey Access and Equity Scholarship.
Every gift, small or large, will help us reach our target to enable a student to begin at Carey in 2022.
