Bank Australia has demonstrated its commitment to ensuring financial disadvantage is not a barrier to education, having recently established a scholarship for the QUT Learning Potential Fund.
The scholarship has been set up in perpetuity, with Bank Australia donating $125000 to ensure this gift will keep on giving.
The 2017 scholarship was recently awarded to Bachelor of Education (Secondary) student, Amanda Robertson.
Bank Australia CEO Damien Walsh said the Learning Potential Fund is a great way for the organisation to build on along-term commitment to addressing educational disadvantage.
“We’re in business to create mutual prosperity—which means creating value for our customers, the communities they live in and the planet we all live on. The Bank Australia Learning Potential Fund Scholarship is a great example of mutual prosperity in action,” he said.
