We believe that a brighter future starts with an education and giving a child the opportunity to thrive at Damascus College is the aim of the Bright Futures Scholarship.

The Bright Futures Scholarship was established in 2018 and is for the purpose of supporting students and families who are experiencing financial or personal disadvantage, and who demonstrate a strong commitment to social justice activities and contribute to their local community

This scholarship is awarded annually to one incoming Year 7 student for 50% tuition relief, and is awarded for the duration of a student's enrolment at Damascus College (maximum of 6 years). More information on the scholarship can be found here.

To raise funds to extend the reach of the Bright Futures Scholarship to multiple students each year, Damascus College engages in numerous Bright Futures events to raise funds for this worthy cause.

The Bright Futures Breakfast occurs twice a year, to raise funds for the Bright Futures Scholarship, to be able to extend its reach to multiple students each year.

Below are the 2021 event dates:

  • Thursday 25 March - breakfast
  • Thursday 3 June - afternoon high tea

Information on these events will be updated approximately 2 months prior to each event.
