Calling all volunteers - La Trobe Aspire Progam

Posted: 12th Aug

Do you volunteer in your local community?

Applications are now open for La Trobe's new Aspire early admissions program - an initiative that recognises the community service achievements of secondary school students.

La Trobe University will reward each region's most community-minded secondary students with a new simple fast-track enrolment scheme.

Enrolments for all La Trobe University courses are available now as part of the new Aspire early admissions program.

La Trobe University Vice-Chancellor Professor John Dewar said the program was about recognising the positive impacts students are having on their community.

Local students can apply for a wide selection of courses under the Aspire program. They will not only receive an early offer to study in Semester 1, 2015, but also access to a support program which includes VCE/HSC revision lectures, mentor support from a La Trobe University student ambassador and access to the University library.

To be considered for Aspire, students must provide a written statement detailing their community involvement – which could be through the school, sports or cultural clubs, or volunteering. A University representative will then contact the students' school principal seeking a recommendation.

Applications opened on 1 July 2014 and close on 31 August 2014. Offers will be made to successful applicants as early as September.

More information is available via the Aspire web page.
