Scholarships

The JCMF offers scholarships annually for secondary students in years 7 to 11. We seek to acknowledge students who show promise, talent, determination and commitment. We support students who are experiencing financial disadvantage and who strive to achieve their potential.

Scholarships of up to $1000 are available for students to complete their schooling, training or apprenticeship.

Working closely with the schools and colleges we are able to provide support to promising young students at the time when they need it.

This scholarship makes such a huge difference to students and their families. You should be so very, very proud. It’s such a wonderful legacy.
— Raffaela Galati Brown, principal of Northern College of Arts and Technology
