Pallottine Scholarship for Notre Dame Broome education students
The Provincial of the Pallotines, together with two priests of the order, have presented two of Notre Dame University's Broome Campus indigenous students with Pallottine Scholarships.
Scholarship recipients Clare Stack and Vanessa Gregory, who are both fourth year education students, were presented with the scholarships during a ceremony held in Graduation Square attended by staff and students from the University, representatives of the Diocese and family members.
The Pallottine Scholarship was developed in the 1990's to encourage positive interaction between indigenous and non-indigenous people. The scholarships assist in the payment of tuition fees of Aboriginal people engaged in post secondary studies.
Executive Director of the Broome Campus Mr Gavin Greaves said, "We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Pallottine community and will support them in the coordination and promotion of their generous scholarship program".
