Albury Lions Club Scholarship

ALBURY LIONS CLUB SCHOLARSHIP LAUNCHED

During the past year, 32 refugees benefited from both financial support and mentoring from the Student Support Committee (24 Cultural fund, 3 Tertiary fund and 5 Richardson Education Assistance Program fund) during 2020.  These scholarship funds enabled us to support the health and wellbeing of youths during a very challenging year.

The end of year reports provided by the Mentors highlighted the student’s value of: mentoring friendship; emotional support; assistance with tutoring and problem solving; and financial support.  

We take this opportunity to thank the Albury Lions Club who have committed to an annual scholarship program from 2021.  Three students have been awarded these scholarships for 2021 and provided with mentors to support them on their tertiary studies journey.
