Scholarship Ceremony – Semester I

Scholarship Ceremony – Semester I

During 2018, over $450,000 in financial support will be awarded to St Mark’s new and returning students this year to enable them to live and learn within the St Mark’s College community.

At the recent Semester I Scholarship Ceremony fifty-three students shared in over $280,000 in scholarships, grants, bursaries and prizes.  These awards recognised and supported a diverse range of criteria such as student achievements, contribution to the community, specific needs, talents, living circumstances and financial need.

The Master, Rose Alwyn welcomed students, parents and special guests to the ceremony including Mr Mark Penniment, Finance Director, Mr Craig Williams, President of the Old Collegians’ Association and Mr Bob and Mrs Gayle Cowan, Cowan Trustees.  In her speech she said that “The cost of quality education is increasing and in speaking to prospective students and their family members it is evident that for many there is a significant financial strain yet desire to reside at a place such as St Mark’s College. At a time when many students have to work part-time to support themselves while they study, the value of scholarships cannot be overstated.”

Mr Bob Cowan of the Cowan Trustees shared his own first-hand experience of studying and managing university fees and living expenses whilst working multiple jobs.  This experience created a philanthropic desire for he and his wife to provide financial assistance to students to ease the financial cost of university and enjoy a balanced lifestyle.  Since then their generosity has enabled countless new and returning students to receive scholarships over the years and enjoy university whilst also experiencing St Mark’s residential college life.  Bob encouraged the students to reflect on the impact of receiving a scholarship and consider their own future benefaction to support the needs of others.

St Mark’s is grateful to all the generous benefactors and friends of the College who contribute generously to keep St Mark’s accessible to students, regardless of their financial circumstance.
