Foundation Gives Students Uni Help
Thursday, 24th April 2014 at 10:28 am

Three VCE students in Victoria’s north west will have the chance to study at university without financial stress thanks to the Fielding Foundation.

Each of the successful scholarship recipients will get $10,000 for three years ($30,000 per recipient).

The scholarships were developed and will be administered by the Sir Robert Menzies Foundation and take in three Victoria state schools – Dimboola Secondary Memorial College, Nhill College and Rainbow Secondary College – located close to Jeparit, where former Prime Minister Robert Menzies was born 120 years ago.

“The Foundation places enormous value on the capacity of talented young people to meet Australia’s future challenges,” Menzies Foundation CEO Sarah Hardy said. 

“Partnerships like this one are about nurturing that capacity.”

Rainbow Secondary College Principal Robyn Bellinger said that the scholarship would likely make it possible for a student to go on to tertiary study, who might otherwise have had to give up on their academic ambitions.

“Sometimes we see highly capable students abandon their potential due to the cost of relocating or traveling to Melbourne,” Bellinger said.

“This program could make those dreams possible.”

The Fielding Menzies Tertiary Scholarships will support tertiary studies, at an approved Australian university for committed senior students, who demonstrate a strong desire and capacity to undertake a university qualification but are likely to experience economic hardship in continuing their education.

Applications open on May 1 and will be awarded for the first time in June. Visit menziesfoundation.org.au.

The Menzies Foundation was established in 1979 as a non-political, Not for Profit organisation to perpetuate the ideals of Sir Robert Menzies, Australia's longest-serving Prime Minister.

The Fielding Foundation was established by Melbourne businessman and philanthropist Peter Fielding.
