Since 1986, sponsors and donors have invested in the well-being of more than 40,000 young people of Western Australia and beyond.
The CBH Group has committed to awarding six scholarships to young West Australians to take part in the youth development program with four scholarships awarded to a local in each of their major four WA grain growing zones and two for Kwinana youth.
The successful CBH scholarship recipients will develop key life skills which will directly impact the individual’s peers, school, family and community.
These benefits will be transferable as the young people phase into adulthood as future employees and responsible citizens in their grain growing communities.
Woodside and the Leeuwin have provided young people throughout Western Australia with the opportunity for personal and professional growth through the Youth Leadership Scholarship program since 2005.
In 2015, Woodside’s support evolved to also include cadetship scholarships, which are awarded to three volunteer crew who have an aspiration for a career at sea, in addition to crew exchanges, which provide an opportunity for Leeuwin volunteer crew to build on their personal and professional skills.
In an ongoing show of support, the Sir Frank Ledger Trust has opened up further scholarships in 2017. Scholarships are awarded to individuals who have a financial, geographical or social limitation.
14 part-scholarships of $1,500 are available annually.
