Graduate House scholarship winners say “thank you” for life-changing opportunity

1 month ago

Yet more students whose membership of St Paul’s College, including Graduate House, has been made possible by scholarships and bursaries have been thanking their donors for these life-changing opportunities. The last e-news reported on the many undergraduate scholarship and bursary winners who have written letters of thanks. This month we report on members of Graduate House who are doing so. Several students have been enabled to enter Graduate House and thus become members of St Paul’s College through scholarships or bursaries provided by the College and the St Paul’s College Foundation. They have recently been writing to the Chair of the College Council and the Chair of the Foundation to express their gratitude. One of the themes of their letters of thanks is a commitment to do what they can to ensure that future students have opportunities at least as good as the opportunities that scholarships have now given them.

Grisp mentoring program delivers for students

1 month ago

Old Paulines mentoring current students brings a direct gain which is being realised through the St Paul’s College Union Grisp initiative. A successful pilot during the 2018/19 summer break has led to an expanded program in 2019.  Present students meet and share scholarly progress and life experiences with alumni providing effective mentoring that can generate positive social and professional outcomes.  The Grisp initiative is creating avenues for old Paulines and their professional colleagues to have a meaningful and on-going relationship with current members of the College community. The students in the initiative, usually in their third year of study, receive advice and coaching to kick-start and guide a career path. It is an opportunity for Pauline mentors to give back to their old College and they are inspiring some of their friends and colleagues to join them. They become facilitators of business learning and the shapers of tomorrow’s leaders. Currently the
