The SpineCare Foundation strongly encourages the participation of people with physical disabilities in the community and workforce.
The Gregory and Dolores Farrell Scholarship
The scholarships, up to the value of $5,000.00 each, are available for eligible students in Year 12 (if applications have been lodged for entrance to a University in 2012) or students already undertaking an undergraduate course. Students who are proceeding to a higher degree are also eligible, as are students who have been accepted for post-graduate study in Australia and overseas.
Applications for 2012 closed on 12/2/2012. This year, the Foundation awarded four Gregory and Dolores Farrell Scholarships to support young people who use a wheelchair to attend tertiary education. These were selected from 17 worthy applicants. Scholarship recipients are undertaking Bachelor degrees in Business and Commerce, Arts and Education, and Communications and Media. The scholarships help to ease some of the financial pressure of tertiary education, such as transport costs and resources, and helps students focus on their studies.
