Fintech start-up specializing in buy-it-now-pay-later services Scalapay has funded a scholarship from the University of Wollongong and announced its first recipient.
Scalapay awarded the scholarship to Arlo Stewart, a student at the University of Wollongong.
He is about to complete his bachelor’s degree in Computer Science (Dean’s Scholar) in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Science.
The Scalapay Next Generation Scholarship provides an annual stipend of $10,000 to a student enrolled in a relevant degree within the School of Computing and Information Technology at the University of Wollongong, School of Electrical Engineering , Computer Science and Telecommunications and School of Applied Mathematics and Statistics.
“When I was finishing high school in Darwin, I didn’t know what I wanted to do, so I went to Canada to work and travel. It wasn’t until after I got back that I had a clearer idea of how I wanted to proceed,” says Stewart.
“A good friend of mine from high school moved to Wollongong to study at UOW, and he loved it. At school, we were both high-achieving, driven students who loved the outdoors, so I trusted his judgment and applied to UOW and was not disappointed.
The scholarship will help Arlo cover the costs of living away from home while providing a chance to work for Scalapay.
“I need this financial support to complete the final year of my studies, so that I can focus on maintaining my grades to stay in the Dean’s Scholars course. I will also cherish the opportunity to learn from the best and have Scalapay’s Chief Technology Officer, Johnny Mitrevski, as my mentor,” said Stewart.
Mitrevski says he is very proud to be able to proactively support the University and its talents, and he continues to look for ways to partner more with them.
“UOW has always done an amazing job in engineering and the quality of education is superb. It has a great package: the campus is fantastic, the teachers are great, the relevant courses and the resulting opportunities are excellent, especially in the area of software and IT,” concludes Mitrevski.
