Working with students in the HEPPP programs at the Uni of Adelaide were some of the most uplifting experiences I have had. Everybody should have the opportunity to educate themselves in the way they desire; and their desires should be founded on a good knowledge of the opportunities available to everyone.

I'm signing because I'm one of these students. Honestly, I can say that it's been a great help to ease the financial burden and anything that I can do to help keep it going so that someone else from a disadvantaged background can have the same opportunity as me, I'm all for it!

The HEPPP gives disadvantaged students the opportunity to study in a supported environment at university. Seeing these students graduate is an endorsement of the program.

I believe this is a worthwhile cause. If it helps to get our kids to continue their education it means there will be less unemployed welfare recipients!

I work with the HEPP funded Pathways to Success project at the University of Tasmania and firmly believe that what I do makes a difference, and we need funding beyond November 2016! I am passionate about what I do and I know many people I speak to didn't consider university as a real option for them until I showed them other pathways to higher education. I think the excursions we take disadvantaged students out to industry on are invaluable for exposure and giving these students the hope that they CAN go on with their education!

I'm signing because this issue that concerns our pacific/Maori/aboriginal and Torres straight islander youth, is a real issue that needs to be addressed!
