Morling offers a variety of scholarships to students (existing and new). These scholarships aim to allow students to focus on their studies and participate in College life by relieving financial pressures that come through tuition fees or living expenses.
The majority of scholarships are awarded in recognition of a student’s sense of vocation and plans for ministry, while others are available to students based on academic achievement or personal circumstances, including financial need.
TOGA SCHOLARSHIP FOR FULL TIME STUDENTS
Morling College now has new scholarships provided by Toga (Sponsor).
The scholarship program is designed to give financial support to a current full-time Morling College student, or accepted as a Morling College full-time student, who represents the Morling values in a constructive and empowering way in the community. Economic needs of the student will be a significant factor. The applicant can be an Australian or overseas student.
There will be two (2) $15,000 per year scholarships. The scholarship is renewal for a maximum of three (3) years but is on a yearly basis for each year. The $15,000 will cover tuition fees and/or accommodation.
The sponsor will be provided with an annual report outlining the progress of successful candidate/s. The student must be doing a fully accredited awarded that includes subjects in areas such as pastoral care, community engagement, leadership and Judeo-Christian worldview values.
The scholarship applications will be overseen annually by the Principal. The successful applicant/s on recommendation of the Principal will be considered by the Morling College Leadership team before a decision is made. The sponsor will be advised of the successful candidate/s.
