Outside of the general Student Scholarships Program (SSP) the Department also offers two high profile Department sponsored scholarships:

The Lynne Kosky Memorial VCAL Scholarships

The Lynne Kosky Memorial VCAL Scholarships were developed in recognition of Lynne's passion for the principles of public education. The Department provides two scholarships each year for two outstanding students.

The Scholarships are available to students who are aged 17 years or under as of 1 January 2018, who are planning to study VCAL in 2018 as a pathway to further study, employment or training, and who face financial barriers to remaining in education.

The scholarships are valued at up to $25,000 over 5 years of study, in grants of $2,500 per semester subject to satisfactory progress.
