An extra boost for tenants to reach their goals
The Argyle Tertiary Scholarship is a Board initiative aimed at incentivising and providing financial support for tenants while they study or receive vocational training.
The scholarship has enabled tenants to change their lives and achieve positive outcomes.
Many of the recipients have been long-term social housing tenants. Together with Argyle staff, the Argyle Tertiary Scholarship Program is assisting these tenants to escape the cycle of dependence and achieve their dreams.
Since its inception in 2015, the scholarship has assisted 15 tenants with funding totaling $19,500.
Scholarships have been awarded in all of the Argyle office areas to tenants ranging in age from 16 to 60 from many different cultures and across disciplines as diverse as Medical Science, Skills for Work and Agricultural Management.
Thankfully, we will continue providing access to education with the support of the Board and business partners KPMG and Arthur J. Gallagher & Co – a further seven scholarships are funded for the year ahead.
