Every year, Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank branches provide for a scholarship to young people starting their first year of University or a Diploma or Advanced Diploma at a TAFE. The “Geoff Vickers Youth Scholarship” provides support for young people in the Upper Yarra who may struggle to get to University or TAFE without some support.
Scholarships open in late December and close in mid February of the following year. All criteria, FAQs and application form will be provided closer to the opening of our Scholarship Program. For further information, contact us on 5966 9028.
