Bendigo Bank Mirboo North and District – New Scholarship program to benefit local youth, – Dec. 2019

Four students from our local district will benefit from a new scholarship program, which will supplement their study costs in their first and second year of university.

Warren Warner, chair of the Mirboo North & District Community Bank Branch, said the bank’s Scholarship Program, which opens in December, was launched because the Branch believed that students from country areas deserve every opportunity to pursue university studies.

“An investment in education yields great long-term dividends and by helping young people gain access to tertiary education, the returns to the student, their families and the local community are significant.

The Community Bank Branch Scholarship Program is a transformative undertaking that changes the lives of local students, strengthens communities for the long term and is a tangible example of the good that banking with us can achieve.

Our young people are our future and we believe they deserve the best support possible to help forge their careers and achieve their dreams”

Successful Mirboo North & District Community Bank Scholarship applicants will receive $3000 funding for the first year. A further $3000 will be received in the second-year, dependent on successful completion of the first year of their chosen study.

Applications are invited from eligible students, starting their university studies in 2020, from 2 December 2019. Applications close on 28 January 2020 and will be assessed in early February 2020.
