Scholarship ceremony celebrates student success

At our first semester scholarship ceremony, forty-seven students were awarded scholarships and grants. Over $100,000 was awarded to students in recognition of their academic results, contribution to their home and school communities, and to those with financial need. The College holds two presentation ceremonies each year, and also an academic prize ceremony and dinner, to acknowledge the work of our students who are achieving success in their academic and personal pursuits.

St Mark’s College is immensely grateful to our donors and supporters who provide financial assistance to our students, enabling them the opportunity to have an enriched university experience. Cowan Grant Trustees, Bob and Gayle Cowan travelled from Mt Gambier to present the Cowan Grants to rural and regional students who have moved to Adelaide for their tertiary studies. In the Master’s opening address, she said that scholarship were particularly critical “at a time when many students have to work part-time to support themselves while they study, the value of scholarships cannot be overstated.   Scholarship support helps to keep St Mark’s accessible to the best students, regardless of their financial circumstances.”

Congratulations to all recipients!
