Kangan Institute Scholarships: Funding and Application

Students of Kangan Institute who may be experiencing financial difficulty, and as a result, find it hard to pursue their chosen career path, can find relief in the Kangan Institute Scholarships. These scholarships are mostly tuition exemptions which may be full or partial. For most of the Kangan Institute Scholarships, there is no specified number of recipients. However, each scholarship is considered on a case-to-case basis which means that although there are eligibility criteria, candidates’ circumstances can determine the outcome of their application. What is most important, however, is that by endowing scholarships on the basis of financial need, Kangan Institute emphasizes the second line in its motto – Bound to succeed. The institute believes that when students are given an enabling environment devoid of worry and financial constraints, they will indeed succeed. 

Who sponsors Kangan Institute Scholarships?

Kangan Institute Sponsorships are numerous. While the institute remains the major sponsor, there are indigenous and foreign organizations that partner with Kangan Institute to award scholarships to international students from specific countries, or other types of beneficiaries. For example, the SSI Allianz Scholarships are jointly sponsored by Settlement Services International (SSI), and Allianz, with support from Kangan Institute. 

About Kangan Institute

When Kangan Institute was first established in 1986, its history could be traced to 1925 when it was Richmond Technical School. Later, it became known as the Broadmeadows College of TAFE, and eventually, the institution acquired more campuses and formed mergers. In 1995, the school was renamed the Kangan Institute of TAFE (Technical and Further Education), and this was to honor Myer Kangan – the founder of the TAFE system in Australia. Today, the Kangan Institute has five campuses namely Broadmeadows, Essendon, a health campus at Moonee Ponds, a creative industries campus in Richmond, and the Automotive Centre of Excellence in Docklands. 

Kangan Institute is at 1 Batmans Hill Dr, Docklands VIC 3008, Australia. 

Types of Kangan Institute Scholarships

Kangan Institute Scholarships focus more on meeting students’ financial needs than awarding students on the basis of academic excellence. As a result, the institute encourages students who have one disability or another, to apply for its numerous scholarships. It is not unusual to discover that Kangan Institute Scholarships give priority to students with disabilities. 

Kangan Institute Education Support Scholarships 

This Kangan Institute Scholarship is for local students who find it difficult to pay their fees and study the program of their choice. As a result of this, they may have to go for less expensive programs that they have no passion for. The Education Support Scholarships include both tuition and non-tuition costs. However, the scholarship does not help with books or computer equipment. The value of the scholarship depends on the program the beneficiary is registering for. In other words, the value of the scholarship for one person may not be the same for another student. The scholarship runs through the duration of the beneficiary’s stay in the school.
