Rotary Club of Canberra City Equity Scholarships
Published: 26 Jul 2019
The Rotary Club of Canberra City partnered with Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) in 2015, to offer two Rotary Club of Canberra City Equity Scholarships to eligible CIT students. These scholarships continue into 2018.
Chief Executive, Leanne Cover, thanked the Rotary Club of Canberra City for the partnership opportunity. " Rotary is highly regarded by the CIT community. CIT will be able to continue to achieve great outcomes for students and the community by working with invaluable organisations like Rotary," Ms Cover said.
The scholarships are the result of the Rotary Club of Canberra City's hard work and dedication fundraising within the local Canberra community to pay forward opportunity and financial assistance to those most in need.
Anne Jenkin, the club's Vocational Service Director, says these scholarships have an important point of difference from many others. " There are lots of incentives available for helping people get into a course, but these scholarships are about actually wanting to keep students in a course and enabling to them to complete. Recipients will have already demonstrated a commitment to their study. I think that's important," she said.
