2021 Recipient | Anna Xavier | PhD Scholarship
These scholarships are available for any New College Postgraduate Village resident who is enrolled in a PhD program at UNSW.
Recipients will be active members of the NCV Research Community and involved in wider College life.
PhD scholarships support promising postgraduate research students like Anna from Malaysia. Her research into language and literacy education aims to reduce marginalisation of refugee young people in the Australian education system.
Anna makes a valuable contribution to NCV life as Senior Academic Tutor. She runs the fortnightly Research Community meetings and oversees the tutoring program. She has also loved taking part in NCV Christian Fellowship activities and Culture Nights.
Being an international student from a developing country, receiving this scholarship has helped me focus more on my PhD without constantly worrying about supporting myself financially.
