AN opportunity for local students to receive a scholarship grant of $2,000 to help with their tertiary study is now available, with Shepparton Camera House recently kicking off the inaugural grant.
Open for applications until February 15, 2015, the Shepparton Camera House Student Scholarship for 2015 will be available to students completing year 12 in 2014 or 2013 (gap year) and the applicant must have taken at least a week of work experience in a local manufacturing, horticulture, hospitality, tourism or retail industry.
Shepparton Camera House Director Sales, Marketing and Community Events, Paul Lelliott said, “This is all about encouraging the youth of the Greater Shepparton region to complete their studies successfully and to positively contribute to the economy of the region.
“The scholarship will assist students in meeting the costs associated with living away from home and/or other expenses directly related to their selected course.
“I have a child at university in Adelaide, one doing a gap year and working here at the Shepparton Camera House and a child who is in year 11 at Goulburn Valley Grammar School, so I am aware of the costs associated with education and this scholarship is designed to help with that.”
Applications can be lodged with Shepparton Camera House for the attention of Paul Lelliott. The school or college will advise the successful applicant no later than March 15, 2015.
