Minister presents scholarships to 12 students at Eaglehawk Secondary College

Friday, 17 October 2014

Twelve students at Eaglehawk Secondary College were today presented with certificates and scholarships to assist them with their studies, thanks to the Victorian Coalition Government's Student Scholarship program.

Minister for Housing Wendy Lovell and Liberal candidate for Bendigo East Greg Bickley today congratulated recipients of the $1,100 scholarships at a special ceremony at Eaglehawk Secondary College.

In its tenth year, the Student Scholarship Program, in partnership with Kids Under Cover, gives students who are most in need some financial breathing space to allow them to continue with their studies.

Mr Bickley said these scholarships provide financial support for students and can be used for a range of expenses that assist young kids to stay in school, including fees, disability aids, transport and child care.

"These scholarships have the potential to make a difference to the lives of these students who are at a critical time in their studies," Mr Bickley said.

Ms Lovell said the Napthine Government is proud to continue to deliver this program which enables students to engage in education and training and helps to breakdown the cycle of disadvantage.

"It is an important step for these young people along the pathway to training, employment and further education," Ms Lovell said.

In total there were 230 scholarships awarded this year across Victoria, up from 150 last year.

"I'd like to congratulate all 230 students across the state who have received scholarships this year and look forward to hearing about their achievements in the future.

"I wish you all the best in your endeavours," Ms Lovell said.
