UYCENews, Sponsorships


We are pleased to announce ‘JOINT RECIPIENTS’ of the Geoff Vickers Youth Scholarship 2021.

Committed to supporting young people in the Upper Yarra, Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank branches first awarded a Youth Scholarship in 2014.

Through our Scholarship program we aim to provide support for expenses that might otherwise dissuade our young people from taking the leap into Tertiary education.

We are committed to supporting those who can demonstrate strong academic commitment and local community involvement AND can demonstrate the challenging circumstances (financial and/or social) hindering their ability to undertake further study).

For 2021 we are pleased to have worthy three recipients:


ASHLEE SHOTTER, Launching Place

First year Nursing Diploma at Box Hill Institute


First year Bachelor of Design Degree, Melbourne University


LAURA JAYNE, Warburton

First year Bachelor of Arts Degree, Victoria University

Our Congratulations Are Extended to Ashlee, Chelsea and Laura.

We wish them all the best to pursue and realise their academic dreams!
