TAFE Western students from Dubbo and surrounding areas will benefit from a new scholarship program funded by Macquarie Credit Union.
The scholarship program will provide 10 TAFE students from Dubbo and the surrounding area with $1000 each which can be used for costs associated with their training such as fees and learning resources.
Mr Matthew Bow, Macquarie Credit Union General Manager said, “We have a proud tradition of supporting our communities’ through sponsorships and donations.
“TAFE students are the future so when the opportunity arose to help change lives through education and training we were very exciting to partner with the region’s largest provider of vocational education and training.
Ms Kate Baxter, TAFE Western Institute Director said, “We would like to thank Macquarie Credit Union for their $10,000 commitment to our students. This scholarship program will ensure our students succeed in their studies.
“Many of our students experience significant disadvantage and we know that education and training helps overcome that disadvantage allowing them to make positive change and aspirations for themselves, their families and their communities.
“I would encourage students to not delay as this semester’s scholarship applications close on Friday, 20 February 2015.”
