Meet our current McLean Scholars
Kim Biasio - 2015-2017
The academic workload this semester was pretty full on with a lot of high weighting assessments due at the same time. The McLean Scholarship has helped with rent, textbooks and other stationary necessary for university life, significantly ink, which gets used a lot when it comes to big assessments.
Tayla Solomon - 2016-2018
I really enjoyed my placement, and wished it never ended. Although the hours were tough, the days went so fast and I felt like I learnt so much in just a short period of time. I have not used my funds this year, but I will soon need them for my textbooks and support for me on placement, as my next placements are away from home.
Shannon Graham - 2017-2019
The funds from this scholarship have been extraordinarily helpful this year and I am so grateful to have received such an enabling scholarship. The funds relieved much pressure off my mother and I and allowed me to spend money on other necessary things such as textbooks for the upcoming semester.
Claire Pascoe - 2017-2019
Receiving the funds from this scholarship has honestly made this move from Broken Hill possible for me. I used the funds toward my rental payments and this has allowed me to live in a beautiful home where I feel comfortable and at home. I am forever grateful the McLean Foundation's generosity.
