Scholarship Award Ceremony 2018

We are excited to invite new scholarship recipients, their family, friends and supporters of Western Chances to join us on Wednesday 21 March 2018 for our annual Scholarship Award Ceremony.

The Western Chances Scholarship Award Ceremony will be held in the grand surrounds of Deakin Edge in Federation Square. This important occasion celebrates new scholarship recipients and is an evening to honour their achievements and to encourage them to continue their hard work and dedication to following their dreams.

The event will be attended by scholarship recipients, their families, nominators, school principals, donors, supporters, Western Chances staff and Board members. It is a free event and everyone is welcome to attend.
