Ten students have been selected to take part in the 2019 MSN Refugee Student Education Program.
Supported by the Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation and Northern Settlement Services, the program will provide 10 eligible students each with:
• a scholarship of $2,000, to purchase resources that support their education;
• a personalised career development advice program, valued at $1,000; and
• participation in a 13 week mentoring program, with each student being appointed a mentor trained by the Mentor Support Network.
Eligible students are at least 15 years old, currently enrolled in school or another educational institution, committed to their education and have a refugee background.
Scholarships were awarded to students at a presentation in February 2019. Watch the video here.
