Natasha Brocklesby

It was more than 150 years ago that Caroline Chisholm made her mark on Australia, helping people to find housing and jobs. Today, the Caroline Chisholm Education Foundation helps those facing financial hardship to cover their course and material fees and any associated costs at Chisholm. The charity supports current and future students who may otherwise be unable to access study, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

One recipient of a scholarship from the foundation has shared their story. When art-lover Natasha Brocklesby, pictured, finished Year 12, she knew she wanted to study a visual art course at Chisholm. But Natasha was unable to afford the course fees, so she took a gap year instead.

When she eventually applied for the Certificate IV in Visual Arts at Chisholm the following year, a staff member told her about the foundation and she was able to successfully apply for a scholarship. She loved the course, which she has since completed, and has now started the Diploma of Visual Arts (Illustration) receiving assistance from the foundation once again. “I’m so grateful or I wouldn’t be able to do this,” she says. “I don’t have any help.”

With a talent for creating characters and designs, the 21-year-old hopes to find work in concept design for film, TV or book covers. “I’ve done a few commissions privately,” she says. The dedicated student has a six-hour return trip via public transport to study at the Frankston campus, but she says it’s worth it. “I wanted to do this so I’m willing to put in the time,” Natasha says.

It’s not too late to apply with ongoing financial scholarships available throughout the year. Visit
