The financial aid that Griffith provides to international students facilitates endless possibilities, just as my Griffith Scholarship made my dream to study in Australia a reality. They believed in me first as a person and then as a student, allowing me to follow my personal passion in Psychology to help others struggling with cognitive disorders.
