The RSM Regional Scholarship was a great initiative in order to give me an insight into my degree before completing it.
Not only does it financially assist you as a university student, but it also provides the ability to receive work experience which is more valuable than anything.
Since the accounting industry is very competitive, this scholarship allowed me to have that competitive advantage over other graduates seeking accounting jobs. I have now been working full time at RSM in Bunbury since completing my degree, and without doubt it was all because of this scholarship!

The RSM Regional Scholarship assisted me with some of the costs associated with attending University in the City, as well as allowing me to gain invaluable paid work experience throughout my university studies. The scholarship was unique in that I was able to gain work experience at both the RSM Perth Office while I was at Uni and the RSM Bunbury Office when I returned home for the semester breaks.
The work experience and exposure to the industry assisted in my understanding the concepts I was learning at Uni and allowed me to apply those skills in a practical work place environment. I have now been with RSM for 4 years after successfully obtaining a grad position in my chosen field and the support RSM has provided me over the years has been invaluable. I would recommend any regional students interested in accounting to apply for RSM’s Regional Scholarship, have a go as the rewards and experiences will set you on the right path for your career.

The RSM Regional Scholarship allowed me to get a step ahead in the accounting profession straight from high school. The paid work experience not only assisted in my university degree, but it also allowed me to hit the ground running once my degree was completed. It can take quite some time in an accounting role before you are exposed to all of the areas of the profession, so the early work experience is the most valuable benefit of the scholarship.
The scholarship funding also greatly assisted with the cost of university, especially the cost of relocating to the city. This allows for a little less time worrying about money, and a little more time to invest on your degree.
I have now been with RSM for 8 years and have since relocated from our Moora office to our Perth Tax Division. I recommend the scholarship to any regional students who are currently enrolling in university if they are looking to fast-track their education and career.
