Ellie Harrison, musician and grant applicant (Brisbane)

Dr. Catriona McLeod went above and beyond to help me not only with crafting my scholarship application but also to mentor me so that when I did write the application I had something well researched, achievable and solid to create. I did not expect to finish the application with a clear realistic idea of where I am headed and the steps to get there. In writing the application I was completely overwhelmed and Catriona so graciously led the way to attack such a big application and to craft my words together so expertly.

When it came to editing Catriona was invaluable by helping me to cut everything down (by nearly 50%!) to fit within the word limits. Even on the application due date, Catriona was instrumental in checking that I made it in on time and for helping me with the daunting online form.

Thank you Catriona! I would not have been able to construct, write or hand in the application without your help. It was such a wonderful process and I feel much more confident in the direction I am going in!
