Scholarship invite

Wimmera-Mallee students keen to pursue their education goals have until early next year to apply for a scholarship program to help cover costs of tertiary education. 

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank’s 2021 program offers a range of scholarship options up to $5000 to support students with study and relocation related expenses. 

Students pursuing undergraduate degrees and those studying certificate, diploma and associate degree courses are invited to apply.

Bank board chair Jacqueline Hey said the program helped students break down barriers to access further education and succeed in their chosen career.

“The scholarship program aims to enable students to access further study, regardless of background or location, by assisting with travel and accommodation costs and course materials,” she said. 

“We want students to be able to focus on their education without having to worry about financial pressures or feel unable to pursue further study.” 

This year the banks will also introduce the Bendigo Bank Indigenous Scholarship program to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

In 2020, more than $1-million was granted to students through the bank’s scholarship program, which incorporates the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Scholarship for rural and regional students, scholarships from participating Community Banks and the Rural Bank scholarships.

Applications are invited from first-time tertiary students starting their studies in 2021 and close on January 29.
