Let’s raise $1m in 24 hours for First Nations Scholarships

Something special is happening at Scotch… again!

A new First Nations Scholarship honouring Australian tennis icon Evonne Goolagong and her husband Roger Cawley is being established at Scotch. The scholarship will be officially launched through a 24-hour Giving Day on 9 – 10 May 2024. To date, three First Nations students have attended Scotch via Evonne Goolagong’s Indigenous Tennis Academy, including last year’s School Captain Dion Whitfield. The Goolagong-Cawley First Nations Scholarship will open the door for more First Nations students from across Australia to attend Scotch College, and keep the momentum behind our efforts to endow 12 perpetual First Nations scholarships.

Every Donation Quadrupled

Thanks to the generosity of our ‘matching donors’, every donation towards our goal of $1 million during the 24-hour appeal on 9 – 10 May will be quadrupled. Give to the Goolagong-Cawley First Nations Scholarship

First Nations Partnership

For nearly 20 years, Scotch has awarded scholarships to First Nations students from all around the country. Over that time, 34 First Nations students have graduated from Scotch. During their time at the School they have touched the lives of students and staff alike. They have left Scotch to pursue a wide range of professions, pursuits and passions. Scotch’s First Nations Program ensures that, during the most influential years of their lives, Scotch boys have the opportunity to learn from and develop friendships with First Nations students. A respectful future is based on these friendships and relationships.

A shared belief in the power of education

Evonne Goolagong is a First Nations Australian who has won the hearts and minds of her fellow Australians and sports fans worldwide. While her tennis career speaks for itself, it is her work off the court that defines her legacy. Evonne has championed opportunities for young First Nations tennis players through her Academy – the Evonne Goolagong Academy. ‘If they’re not attending school then they’re not in my Academy,’ says Evonne. Roger Cawley has been a grounding influence and teammate for Evonne. Humble, articulate and genuine of word and spirit, Roger’s legacy is also profound. His work for the Evonne Goolagong Academy has been instrumental in both its concept and execution. His ability to build relationships at home and abroad has delivered stellar outcomes for the children accepted into the Academy. A shared belief that education is the burning light for the future of First Nations Australians unites Evonne and Roger with Scotch.

Giving Day 2024

On 9 – 10 May 2024, we hope you can join us in creating opportunities for First Nations Australians, by supporting the Goolagong-Cawley First Nations Scholarship. Give to the Goolagong-Cawley First Nations Scholarship
