The following scholarship opportunities are available for students seeking an education at St Patrick’s Technical College.

The Smith Family – Learning for Life Scholarships

St Patrick’s Technical College is proud to be associated with The Smith Family through its Learning for Life program.

The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program supports disadvantaged children and young people all the way through their education, from pre-school and primary school, to senior school and on to tertiary studies if they choose. This holistic, long term support gives young Australians the assistance they need to develop vital life skills, stay engaged in their education and have the best chance to realise their potential.

Learning for Life support is provided to disadvantaged children and young people in three main ways:

  • through Learning for Life Workers, who connect them to learning opportunities in their local community and also encourage them to fully participate in their education;
  • by enabling access to Smith Family literacy programs and mentoring support; and
  • through financial assistance to help families afford the cost of their children’s essential education items.

Learning for Life programs support not only disadvantaged children but also their families who provide the crucial nurturing relationships and supportive learning environments that children need. Parents can access education opportunities themselves to help them develop and build their own skills and abilities.
