A Testimonial From a Past Winner

“The AIM WA Scholarship Program for not for profit organisations is a wonderful initiative, making first class training available to those who may not be able to benefit otherwise. Our team look forward to selecting programs which will benefit them personally as well as the Foundation, so we can help transform the health care of WA’s sick children and young people so they can live their healthiest and happiest lives.”
