The financial burden of study has been made easier for nine local university students.
Community Bank Scholarships were recently awarded to first and second year university students who may not have been financially able to continue studies otherwise.
The $10,000 scholarships are distributed over two years of study, with funds split evenly over the period.
Community Company executive officer Laura McBride said the scholarships were presented to “nine very deserving young students who have shown a strong commitment to their studies and future career aspirations by taking the next step into tertiary education”.
Eligibility criteria for the scholarship included university acceptance, the demonstration of financial difficulty, a proven record of community leadership and students have resided in the Lang Lang, Pearcedale, Kooweerup, Narre Warren South and Tooradin areas.
This year’s recipients where Lang Lang’s Nicholas Mudge and Taneisha Hobson; Somerville’s Jacinta Hennekam, Jasmine Birch and Rachele Hennekam; Narre Warren South’s Atifa Asghari and Nicholas McKinnon; Amy Gregorovich from Pakenham and Mary McGindle from Blind Bight.
