This year’s winner of the Capstone Editing Textbook Grant for Undergrads

We are very excited to announce the 2020 recipient of our Capstone Editing Textbook Grant for Undergraduates, Robert Newsome. Robert is well on his way to becoming a physiotherapist through his university studies and working as an allied health assistant at the Rockhampton Base Hospital.

After graduating in 2017 from Rockhampton Grammar School, Robert commenced his tertiary education at CQUniversity, where he is studying a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. While he can’t think of anything he would rather do than study at university, he found the transition from school to tertiary study quite challenging. The welcoming environment at Capricornia College (CQUniversity Student Residence) has been an effective foundation from which he has blossomed with the support of friends, family and the physiotherapy community.

Robert loves being active, reading and helping others, which he does mostly through the disability support work that complements his studies. He is due to finish his degree at the end of 2022, and after completing his studies, Robert would be thrilled to start his full-time physio career in Rockhampton but is not averse to moving to the ‘big smoke’. Robert also has entrepreneurial goals and a desire to purchase a franchise in a physio business one day.

We are so pleased that this grant will assist Robert by giving him access to the most recent textbooks for his course—no more borrowing from the library or friends!
