Frank Raleigh Scholarship
Help us grow the Frank Raleigh Scholarship Fund and ensure its lasting legacy. Frank Raleigh’s generosity has enabled us to financially support students for decades. Your donation will ensure Frank’s legacy lives on and Ormond remains accessible for more talented students. Frank passed away after giving 61 years of his life to our College. In his will, he left all the money he had
to establish a scholarship fund. He wanted to ensure students without the financial means had the chance to benefit from the life-changing educational experience Ormond provides. And, with your help, his scholarship fund will continue to support students for years to come.
Hugh Collins Scholarship
For many students coming from government schools, the cost of college fees are simply beyond consideration. Help from you will ensure that we can assist even more talented students to benefit from an Ormond experience.
Pompey Elliott Rural Scholarship
The Harold ‘Pompey’ Elliott Rural Scholarship enables students from regional or rural Australia, in need of financial support, to come to Ormond. The Scholarship honours Ormondian Brigadier General Harold ‘Pompey’ Elliott, Australia’s great WWI fighting general who was famous for the care he had for his soldiers. He came to Ormond from his home in West Charlton outside Ballarat.
Indigenous students are an integral part of our College community and we are actively committed to increasing the number of indigenous students at Ormond. Your support in this area will enable us to assist even more exceptional students to thrive with an Ormond experience.
This Scholarship, which has been initiated by alumni from the legal field who were at Ormond in the late 60s and early 70s, will help enable students with the highest financial need to reside at Ormond while studying at the University of Melbourne.
The scholarship was established by alumni and parents to enable a third year (or later) female student to continue as a resident at Ormond College. It seeks to support and nurture an all-round student willing to be actively involved in College life and keen to take on leadership role or responsibilities.
Alumni who were at Ormond in the mid-80s are establishing a scholarship for a student with financial need to come to Ormond.
Sir Lindsay Ride Scholarship
A group of Ormond alumni living in Hong Kong wanted to assist an exceptional student from the region to come to Ormond. They recognized that a broad range of students in the College contributes to a stimulating environment for both formal and informal learning, and a crucible for students’ understanding of the globalised and connected world in which they live. Importantly, they saw the benefits that such a student, remaining connected to the region, could provide through influencing and leading positive change in Australia and Greater China.
This scholarship commemorates Sir Lindsay Ride and the values and characteristics he represented – academic excellence, community service, appreciation of the arts and sport as well as displaying courage, dedication and commitment in his chosen fields. The student who is provided with this scholarship will reflect these qualities.
