Fintech start-up specialising in buy now pay later services Scalapay has funded a University of Wollongong scholarship and announced its first recipient.

Scalapay has awarded the scholarship to University of Wollongong student Arlo Stewart.

He is set to finish his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science (Dean’s Scholar) within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences.

The Scalapay Next Generation Scholarship offers a $10,000 annual stipend for a student enrolled in a relevant degree within the University of Wollongong’s School of Computing and Information Technology, School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering, and the School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics.

“When I was finishing high school in Darwin, I didn’t know what I wanted to do, so I went to Canada to work and travel. Only after coming back, did I have a more crystallised idea of how I wanted to proceed,” Stewart says.

“One of my good friends from high school moved to Wollongong to study at UOW, and he absolutely loved it. At school, we were both high-achieving, motivated students who loved the outdoors, so I trusted his judgement and applied to UOW. I wasn’t disappointed.”

The scholarship will help Arlo cover the costs of living far from home while also offering a chance to work for Scalapay.

“I need that financial support to see me through the final year of my studies, so I can focus on maintaining my grades to stay in the Dean’s Scholars course. I will also cherish the opportunity to learn from the best and have Scalapay chief technology officer Johnny Mitrevski as mentor,” Stewart says.

Mitrevski says he’s very proud to be in a position to proactively support the University and its talent, and he continues to look for ways to further partner with them.

“UOW has always done an amazing job at engineering, and the quality of the education is superb. It has a great package: the campus is fantastic, the teachers are great, the courses relevant, and the opportunities that come from it are excellent – especially within the software and computer sciences realm,” Mitrevski concludes.
