Western Chances is an organisation that has provided scholarships to students in Melbourne’s west for several years. The scholarships support talented and motivated students who may not otherwise have an opportunity to pursue their education and dreams. Western Chances have supported many VUSC students over the years. Recently a ceremony was held to congratulate students who received scholarships last year.
A former VUSC student, Tom Bogusiak (left), was a recipient of a Western Chances scholarship for many years and last year completed his Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic) with Honours at RMIT. Tom is featured on the Western Chances website at www.westernchances.org.au and recently presented their Program Manager, Anne Connors with a stainless steel miniature of his robotic hand invention (below) which he organised to be 3D printed by a company in New York. We congratulate Tom on his achievements and hard work!
