Sub­sidy for TAFE study

Albany Extra - - News - Shan­non Smith

South Re­gional TAFE Albany has awarded 29 stu­dents schol­ar­ships to help with the cost of study for se­mes­ter two.

Stu­dents ap­plied for the schol­ar­ships and a de­ci­sion was made based on the in­di­vid­ual fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tions of each stu­dent, award­ing prizes from $500 to the pay­ment of an en­tire course fee.

The awards were pre­sented at a cer­e­mony on Au­gust 22 at the Albany cam­pus, with prizes handed out by South Re­gional TAFE man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Dun­can An­der­son.

Mr An­der­son paid trib­ute to the spon­sors for help­ing the stu­dents achieve their dreams.

“Many of the stu­dents are man­ag­ing their study along­side full and part-time work, fam­ily and other per­sonal com­mit­ments, and these schol­ar­ships pro­vide en­cour­age­ment as well as help­ing to re­move the fi­nan­cial bar­ri­ers to suc­cess,” he said.

“Through their sup­port of our stu­dents, the spon­sors have also shown their com­mit­ment to re­ward­ing ed­u­ca­tional ef­fort.”

One spon­sor, Western Power, will pay the full course fees of five Albany stu­dents en­rolled in the Cer­tifi­cate II in Elec­trotech­nol­ogy pre-ap­pren­tice­ship.

Mr An­der­son wished the stu­dents the best for their stud­ies and re­sult­ing ca­reers.

“The en­cour­age­ment and as­sis­tance from the schol­ar­ship spon­sors will help you to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to your com­mu­ni­ties through your cho­sen ca­reer paths,” he said.

The awards can be used to pay fees or other study costs.

South Re­gional TAFE stu­dents at the Albany cam­pus cel­e­brate their schol­ar­ships, which will help fund their stud­ies in se­mes­ter two.

Five elec­trotech­nol­ogy stu­dents re­ceived Western Power aid.
