Originally established in 1983 the Wyndham Richardson Scholarship Fund awards scholarships, bursaries and prizes based on merit or reasons of equity to promote a recipient’s tertiary education. These are available to Australian Citizens or Australian Permanent Residents from any State or Territory studying in a tertiary institution.
Wyndham Richardson was born in Melbourne in 1904, but completed his primary and secondary education in South Australia before returning with his family to Melbourne. A combination of circumstances including ill-health, prevented his completing an Engineering degree begun in Adelaide and continued in Melbourne.
He never forgot his disappointment, and later in life he established this Trust to provide assistance to tertiary students experiencing difficulties, including financial difficulties, in undertaking a course of study.
The Wyndham Richardson Scholarship Fund provides scholarships valued at $1000 to assist full-time students enrolled in any TAFE SA Certificate IV or above who are in significant financial hardship.
All sections of the form and supporting documentation must be completed and attached to be considered for selection.
- Full-time actively participating TAFE SA student.
