Each student receives $9000, spread out over Year 12 and their first two years of tertiary studies. Award winners are also offered ongoing support and guidance from a KWM mentor.

O’Malley said: “We are delighted to support these students by providing mentoring and financial support to pursue their tertiary goals and ambitions. 

“The Mallesons Aspire Award is an important part of our community program and enables us to make a difference to the lives of truly deserving young people.”

The Smith Family’s CEO, Dr Lisa O’Brien, echoed his comments, stating, “The added financial assistance provided by the scholarship will help go towards textbooks and other academic costs, easing the financial strain so they can concentrate on getting the most out of their studies."
