SpartaMatrix Bursary Recognises Bond Law's Multi-disciplinary Approach

Two Bond University Law students have been awarded bursaries by logistics security experts SpartaMatrix International.

Mr Zach Kominar and Mathew Cantatore, both Law students at Bond University on the Gold Coast, were awarded SpartaMatrix Bursaries to the amount of $5,000 and $2,500 respectively.

The bursaries are designed to assist Bond Law students who are pursuing a commercial career by contributing towards their tuition fees.

SpartaMatrix CEO Philip Wainwright said it was the first time the Company had sponsored an academic bursary at an Australian University.

“We wanted to show the broader business community the benefits that flow from the Bond degree program and its multi-disciplinary approach,” Mr Wainwright said.

“Students were invited to submit applications demonstrating their computer science skills and experience, multidisciplinary approach to their studies and career, and capacity for leadership.

“We had planned to offer just the one bursary of $5,000, but were so impressed with the quality of applications and standard of the students that we decided to award an additional bursary of $2,500,” he said.

Mr Zach Kominar, the recipient of the $5,000 bursary, is currently studying his Juris Doctor at Bond University and says the money will help him focus more intensely on his studies.

“The SpartaMatrix bursary came at a critical time for me. Faced with mounting debts it was becoming more difficult to finance my degree. The bursary offered a fresh relief financially as well as personal recognition of my ambitions,” Mr Kominar said.

Having already completed a Bachelor of Computer Science, Mr Kominar is looking forward to coupling his technological background with his legal studies to pursue a career in law that has a “technological aspect to it”, such as the protection of intellectual property online, issues in e-commerce, or the use of technology to increase information flow amongst the legal profession.

“My technical background gives me a level of comfort and understanding of the deeper issues in technology and my understanding of legal principles allows me to help analyse and resolve legal issues brought on by these new technological innovations.

“It is my goal to combine my Juris Doctor and Bachelor of Computer Science in my working life to pave creative new paths for my career.

“I would like to thank SpartaMatrix for their generous bursary and for recognising student achievements in developing field of IT/Law,” Mr Kominar said.
