Scholarship Fund

Home / Our School / Community / Scholarship Fund


Since 1962, Daramalan College has been providing financial assistance to eligible families whose situation would exclude them from giving their child an MSC (Missionaries of the Sacred Heart) 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.

Applying for a Scholarship

More information regarding the availability of scholarships and the application process is available on the Enrolments page.

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 undertaken by the Community Engagement Committee, 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.

2019 saw a great night of Beer and Cider Tasting along with a challenging Quiz Night.

2021 and 2022 were great years to raise funds by selling the ‘Dara Dozen’. A selection of great local wines with links to the Daramalan community.

How can I help the student Scholarship Fund

  • 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.
  • Advertise your business in the Daramalan College Community 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. Each year we raise around $1,500 from this partnership.
