"I was forced to leave home at age 15 to escape family violence and subsequently left school in Year 9, living on the streets of Parramatta with other homeless and at-risk youths. Now, at 32 and a single parent of two beautiful boys, I knew that I had to work very hard to secure the life we all deserved. When I got into Western I felt like anything was possible."
- Marama McKay, B Nursing, WSU Community Scholarship Recipient

David Bruce-Smith, Western Sydney University graduate and donor, is helping to create opportunities for students by supporting scholarships.
"Where I can, I want to help others pursue their education and academic interests," says David.
A firm believer in giving back, David says there are two reasons he supports students at the University. The first is how profoundly liberating an education and scholarship can be. The second is that he is appreciative of the education he received at the University which enhanced his career path.
Join David in supporting students by making a tax-deductible donation towards scholarships today.
