Bella Gallagher was a recipient of the scholarship in 2022. Bella’s father, Steven Gallagher works at Boggabri Coal Mine.

Bella is studying a Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood and Primary), and she says that she can’t wait to start this profession and impact young lives.

Bella told us that the Mine Workers Trust fund helped to reduce the financial stress of studying. It has allowed her to dedicate more time to her studies and helped pay for her university fees and day-to-day things like rent and groceries.

The Mineworkers Trust disburses millions of dollars to support vital services and organisations in mining communities. The annual scholarship program has helped put hundreds of students from mining and energy families through universities and other higher education institutions.
