“The Gift of Scholarships”
2017 Annual Giving Campaign
“I don’t ever think I will be able to fully express my gratitude for the independence and opportunities these scholarships have given me but I hope you know that myself, and all the other recipients are so very thankful for your generosity. “ Sarina
This year we seek your support in providing scholarships for new and returning students at St Mark’s College.
Scholarships are critical in attracting new students to the College and play a role in retaining senior students through acknowledging academic excellence, artistic and musical talent as well as their contribution to the university and wider community.
Through the generosity of our Collegians, friends and other benefactors, over 50% of our students currently receive some form of financial assistance through scholarships, prizes and bursaries. Without this support many of them would not be able to attend or continue to live at College.
St Mark’s was founded through the idealism and high aspirations of a number of individuals, and much of the College’s special qualities stem from the history of our founding and the generous response of our community to support their work.
The St Mark’s advantage is evidenced by the level of engagement and subsequent satisfaction students experience with their social life, personal development, access to sporting and cultural activities, broadened horizons, access to leadership opportunities, self-confidence and interpersonal skills, along with the outcomes of better marks and a much stronger likelihood to graduate.
It is also demonstrated in future years through the high achievements and significant contributions made by so many St Mark’s Collegians across the world.
We encourage you to make a scholarship donation so that we can continue to provide financial assistance to students and continue to build a strong and resilient community in the years to come.
There are a range of options for donors to support our scholarship program which include creating your own scholarship for a short or longer term, or to simply help a student in need from time to time as a Scholarship Champion. Alternatively, you may wish to show you support to the College by donating to another important initiative.
Further information is available in our 2017 Annual Giving brochure.
Thank you for your generous support. Your annual gift, no matter the size, enables the College to flourish.
Rose Alwyn, Master
James Price, Foundation President
