2020 Recipient | Anna Xavier | Stuart Barton Babbage Fellowship
You're bettering lives with postgraduate research
The Stuart Barton Babbage Fellowship supports promising postgraduate research students like Anna from Malaysia. Her PhD research into language and literacy education aims to reduce marginalisation of refugee young people in the Australian education system.
Anna lives in New College Postgraduate Village (NCV) and contributes to academic life as Senior Academic Tutor. She is responsible for coordinating fortnightly Research Community meetings and overseeing the tutorial program.
This has only been possible because of the Stuart Barton Babbage Fellowship. Anna shares,
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. Living at NCV has definitely been one of the best decisions I have made.
