SCHOLARSHIPS

The Friday Night School Scholarship Fund, in collaboration with a range of Melbourne’s private schools,  provides partial or full scholarships for selected secondary students. These schools include:

  • Xavier College
  • Genazzano FCJ College
  • Loreto Mandeville Hall
  • Academy of Mary Immaculate
  • Al-Taqwa College (a co-educational Islamic College)

Currently the Friday Night School has 17 students on scholarship. The recipients of the scholarship are selected not only on the basis of their academic skills but also on the qualities of character, as shown by their determination and their concern for others.

In addition to the scholarships, Friday Night School allocates funds towards school fees to enable struggling parents, particularly those who have arrive from troubled and violent countries, to send their children to non-State schools known to have a caring environment.
