Mary Murphy commented “Congratulations to all of our well deserving scholarship students this year. This will help to support the students and provide financial assistance towards the costs of fulfilling their full potential. Some of our previous scholars have used the money for purchasing equipment, attending competitions, paying for specialist coaching or tuition and studying towards extension awards.”

Students fulfilling certain criteria can apply for scholarships as part of the college application process and successful students are awarded financial rewards over their two years of study. We look forward to meeting next year’s potential scholars at their college interviews over the next few months.”
