Students in Year 10 are invited to apply for the Lynne Kosky Memorial VCAL Scholarships. The scholarships recognise the outstanding contribution that Lynne Kosky made to education and training in Victoria.
One of her greatest achievements was the introduction of the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) as an alternative to the Victorian Certificate of Education.
Two scholarships are available for Victorian students in Year 10 who plan to study VCAL in Years 11 and 12 as a pathway to further study, employment or training.
Each VCAL Scholarship will be valued at up to $25,000 in $5,000 grants each year over 5 years of study, training or apprenticeship.
Financial need is one of the eligibility criteria. Students receiving the Youth Allowance or the student’s parents/guardians holding a Health Care Card, a Low Income Health Care Card or a Pensioner Concession Card meet this criterion.
