Sodexo Scholarships at St Marks College


Sodexo Catering Manager, Colum Byron, proudly presented the Sodexo Scholarships at recent the St Mark’s College Semester II Scholarship Ceremony taking place on 17 October, 2018. The Sodexo scholarship is awarded to St Mark’s students who demonstrate outstanding academic performance.

During the ceremony, thirty-eight students were awarded nearly $80,000 worth of scholarships, prizes and grants.  These awards recognised a diverse range of criteria such as academic excellence, outstanding abilities, contribution to the College or wider community, background, chosen field of study, or financial need.

The Head Master shared that “for generations, financial support and assistance through scholarships, prizes and grants has always been vital for students, however more now than ever before to ensure that talented students from lower socio-economic backgrounds are supported to succeed, and to enable all students to reach their full potential so that they can explore all the opportunities that life as a university student offers.  As a College, we have a responsibility to ensure that our future leaders come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and scholarships are just one way to enable that to happen.

“The College and our students are truly appreciative of the generosity demonstrated by those who have established and continue to fund scholarships. Thank you for your generous support.” – Sarah Hampel, Director of Development & Marketing
