Thirty-three ACT public college students received support to further their education through the Capital Chemist College Scholarships award ceremony held last week.

Over 16 years Capital Chemist has invested more than $550,000 in our senior secondary students through this program.

“Our public colleges are very proud of the tradition established by the Capital Chemist Group Scholarship program, celebrating the diversity, excellence and community values of final year students,” Canberra College Principal Michael Battenally said.

Each of the ACT’s nine secondary colleges and two specialist schools were awarded up to three scholarships in the following categories:

Each scholar receives $1000 to be used for their direct educational benefit during their final year of schooling to cover educational expenses such as face-to-face or online tutoring, uniforms and equipment, stationery and books, a laptop or excursions and camps.

“This scholarship is an opportunity that will help support the academic extension possibilities of my education,” Academic Excellence Award recipient Lachlan Rowe said.
