Student Reward and Recognition program
At ELTHAM College, we are enriching and investing in our students’ education with a scholarship approach that dares to be different. ELTHAM’s new approach to the traditional scholarship program will align with our core value of authentic learning, and will inspire students to strive for excellence during their journey with us. We will be creating scholarships, funding opportunities and grants that acknowledge, inspire, and reward students in more creative ways.
While we’ll continue to provide hardship bursaries and recognise academic, sporting and musical achievements, there are other ways our students stand out and excel. We may reward student-led innovation, offer grants for social impact, or seed-fund entrepreneurial pursuits. Students should have equal opportunity for recognition in diverse endeavours for excellence.
