Testimonial

The TEE Consultants Scholarship has made studying education an enriching experience. It has allowed me to focus on my studies without having to worry too much about finances.

More importantly however, is that I've been able to gain invaluable teaching and education experiences through my donor who has given me the opportunity to be involved in the programs he runs for ATAR students. I look forward to a rewarding career in education, and having received a scholarship, I do so in confidence knowing I have people who can support me during this journey.
