Iwasaki Foundation scholarship helps ease PT’s pressures
AS a personal trainer, Nyree Humphris knows the importance of physical flexibility.
The university student appreciates the need for flexibility in work hours to fit around a demanding study schedule.
That is why she is grateful for an Iwasaki Foundation scholarship, which has helped ease the financial burden of her university studies in between paid jobs.
Nyree is nearing the end of her degree in exercise and sports sciences at CQUniversity. She is considering taking a year off to assess her career options in the field of aged care and rehabilitation.
She also hopes to take up a summer research scholarship with CQUniversity, while continuing her work as a personal trainer at Curves and Vector Health in Rockhampton.
The Iwasaki Foundation Tertiary Education Bursary Program aims to help Central Queensland students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds to meet the costs associated with study.
Applications for the next round are due by November 30.
