Scholarship Fund

History

Since 1962, Daramalan College has been providing financial assistance to eligible families whose situation would exclude them from giving their child an MSC education.

The Daramalan College scholarship fund was established in 2013 and aims to offer scholarships to several students each year with the long term goal of supporting scholarship recipients through a self-sustaining fund

Fundraising activities

The Daramalan College Board oversees the administration of the Scholarship Fund through the Scholarship Fund Committee. This committee manages and administers the scholarship fund by supporting activities and initiatives that raise funds or encourage donations or in-kind support. The 2018 Event was the very successful Tallangandra Hill wine tasting Evening held in September.

For 2019, we are proud to present a “Beer, Cider & Trivia” Fundraiser on Thursday 24 October 2019.  

Come along and sample four of the finest Capital Brewing beers and ales, along with four stunning 3 Sons ciders, plus you will also be able show your skills with our first ever electronic multiple-choice trivia questions.

All monies raised go to the Daramalan Scholarship Fund which provides an opportunity for students whose family’s financial circumstances would otherwise prevent the student from attending the College. Book your table here.

You can help in the following ways:

  • Donations from individuals, families, businesses or groups such as graduating classes may be in the form of one-off or ongoing donations. Bequests and endowments named after your family provide a gift for the future.
  • Attend our fundraising events. (See above for 2019).
  • Advertise your business in the Daramalan College Online Business Directory. If you own a business, promote your products and services to the Daramalan Family within the online Business Directory.
  • Shop at The Athletes Foot. If you are buying school or sports shoes, consider looking at what the Athlete’s Foot has to offer, as they offer a percentage from all sales associated with Daramalan College to our Scholarship Fund. Simply mention that you are associated with Daramalan and they will note this in their records. In 2016, we raised $1,500 from this partnership.
