Local student receives our scholarship

Gingin student, James Parker, has been awarded this year's Gingin Communtiy Bank® and Lancelin branches scholarship.

The scholarship is awarded to a first-time tertiary student living in the Shire of Gingin.

The 18-year-old plans to use the award to undertake first-time tertiary study in a Bachelor of Commerce at University of Western Australia, Crawley.

“Going to University I knew it was going to cost a lot of money to pay for books, fuel, parking and all the rest that comes with it. With the scholarship it would just alleviate some of the pressure and allow me to focus on my studies,” James said.
